A strategy for fisheries in the Adriatic and Ionian seas (A7-0234/2013 - Guido Milana)
Pino Arlacchi (S&D ), in writing . − Mr. President, I voted in favor of this resolution because I believe that is important to establish a new EU strategy on fisheries and aquaculture in the Adriatic-Ionian sea basin. This will give a major boost to the development of sustainable economic activities and will have a beneficial effect on coastal communities and adjacent inland areas. I also would like to underline that by developing the aquaculture sector in the Adriatic-Ionian coastal regions could generate non-seasonal jobs which are heavily dependent on the summer tourist trade giving a significant boost to employment in the area.
