Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries, Virginijus Sinkevičius, answered the following questions following the AAC September 2020 General Assembly:

  • What is your view on the fish and other marine animals kept in farms? How can their welfare be improved?
  • Why do you think that aquaculture is not growing in the EU?
  • Why do you think that shellfish farming is decreasing in France?
  • Regarding the Green Deal, there is a lack of milestones and of decisions to be taken if such milestones are not reached. Without those, we only have a collection of good intentions! Are you aware of this lack to make Green Deal truly successful?
