Summary

Sustainable fisheries partnership agreements (SFPAs) are tools for financial and technical support by the EU to develop the fisheries sector and improve fisheries governance together with partner countries in exchange for fishing rights in their waters. SFPAs integrate other EU policies including trade, development, environment and external action, thus contributing to blue growth, food security, human rights and regional stability.
