On 13 June 2022, the Policy Department for Structural and Cohesion Policies presented a study on “Artificial Intelligence and the fisheries sector” at the PECH Committee meeting.

This study reviews current Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems legislation, the AI techniques definition proposed by the AI Act and main applications of AI methods in the fisheries sector with special focus on applications to enhance traceability of fishery products, fishing gear selectivity, good practices, and potential to help young people finding jobs. Finally, this study offers policy recommendations relevant to EU decision-making to achieve a better use of AI systems in the fisheries sector.

Research team was represented by AI expert Dr. Jose A. FERNANDES-SALVADOR (AZTI) and legal expert Dr. Gabriela A. OANTA (University of A Coruña).

The presentation was followed by questions from the Members and a stimulating debate.
