European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund 2021-2027: Commission adopts over €15 million programme for Slovakia

The European Maritime, Fishery and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF), Programme for Slovakia, has been adopted by the Commission. It is intended to implement the EU Common Fisheries Policy and EU policy priorities outlined within the European Green Deal. Over the next six years, the total financial allocation for Slovak program 2021-2027 will be EUR20.4million. The EU contribution is EUR15.2million.

The EMFAF Programme for Slovakia is designed to help create a stronger aquaculture sector and processing industry in Slovakia. It also supports innovation in productive investments and decarbonization.

Virginijus Sinkevicius, Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Commissioner, said that he was happy to announce the approval of the EMFAF program for Slovakia, which will support sustainable use of freshwater resources and the development of aquaculture and fisheries. The new Programme will allow the processing and aquaculture sectors of Slovakia to invest in a resilient, low-carbon sector.

The Program will help support the resilience and digital transition of the aquaculture and fisheries sectors. 83% of the allocation will go towards sustainable aquaculture, processing, and marketing. The programme allocates 52% of the allocation for supporting activities that contribute to EU’s climate goals.


The adoption of the Programme means that the EMFAF programs for all member countries have been adopted. They can now concentrate on using this funding and implementing it on the ground.
