Producer organizations are officially recognized bodies set up by producers in the fisheries or aquaculture sectors. They deal with the day-to-day management of fishing and play an essential role in the functioning of the common fisheries policy and the common organization of the markets, such as:
- guiding producers towards sustainable fishing and aquaculture, in particular by implementing collective management of their members' activities
- helping them reconcile supply and demand
- offering them support in improving their value.
