Only seven of the twenty-two Member States that have a coastline have not yet sent the definitive report on their maritime space planning plan (POEM), which aims to ascertain the guarantees that the countries of the European Union grant to the coexistence of the new renewable energies with traditional fishing activities.

The opening morning of Australia’s Bass Strait Central Zone Scallop fishery (BSCZSF) 2022 season brought the confirmation that it had achieved certification for its sustainable fisheries practices and management.
Its Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification, which followed a 12-month assessment of the fishery against the standard, verifies that the fishery is harvesting from scallop populations that are healthy and productive; a balancing act between how many scallops are caught and how many are left to breed for another season.
The Chilean Salmon Council (CDS) -a union that brings together the companies AquaChile, Australis, Cermaq, Mowi and Salmones Aysén, and which, together, represent more than half of Chilean salmon production-, released a new "Quarterly Report on Salmon Exports" corresponding to the second quarter of 2022 in which shipments of salmon and trout totaled US$ 1,548 million, which represents a growth of 34% compared to the same period in 2021.

Spanish shipyards are bidding for large shipbuilding tenders. One of the most important is an 80 meter oceanographic vessel for the Netherlands for the NIOZ institute. The result of the tender is expected to be known shortly after the summer. Similarly, the Chilean Fisheries Development Institute, the IFOP, wants to commission the manufacture of a new 54-meter long vessel to replace the veteran Abate Molina, 43 meters long and 31 years old.
The European Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, a €27.5 million (DKK 204.4 million) Danish scheme to support the fishery sector affected by the effects of the withdrawal of the UK from the EU.
The aim of the scheme is to incentivise vessel owners to cease commercial fishing activities either (i) by scrapping their vessels or (ii) by decommissioning and retrofitting them for other activities.
