    Abstract

    The study compiles and analyses information on international as well as EU trade flows; it considers the tariffs applied in trade in fisheries with a particular focus on tariff protection maintained by the EU. Against this backdrop the current state of the ongoing multilateral and bilateral trade negotiations is described and analysed with regards to their possible impact on the EU fisheries and aquaculture sectors. Regarding negotiations within the WTO framework the focus is on NAMA and fisheries subsidies. The use of trade defence instruments by the EU is also put in the context of possible amendments to the ADA as well as WTO case law
