October 2016. During spring 2016, the French authorities launched a public tender to conduct “A diagnostic on the role and activity of women in the fisheries and aquaculture industries, including production, port activities, processing, trading and marketing”. This study was initiated under the combined influence of the European Commission which is reinforcing its gender mainstreaming policy in all sectors and also of a recent French public policy on professional equality.
Two members of WSI (the president and the director) have been commissioned to conduct the study, which results are due midt-2017.
The study is under the responsibility of FranceAgriMer, a public administrative organization under State supervision, charged with the promotion and development of the agriculture and fisheries industries.
