Search the European Fisheries Fund database
About the data
This database of European Fisheries Fund (EFF) payments is compiled from data published by EU member states up to August 2011. There are a total of 47,712 payments worth €1.17 billion. The data released by many member states is, quite frankly, a bit of a mess. Some member states have released no data at all. We have done our very best to compile it into this searchable database. The data will soon be available for download.

How to search
To see all recipients from one country, e.g. Spain, search for country:ES, using the standard ISO country codes in UPPER CASE. Note that the United Kingdom is GB and Greece is GR - though you'll not get any results from Greece as its government has not published any data!
To find only records that are an exact match for your search terms, enclose them in inverted commas, i.e. "search terms".
You can use standard Boolean operators AND, OR and NOT. The AND operator retrieves all records which contain both of the terms it separates. The OR operator retrieves all records which contain either or both of the terms it separates. The NOT operator retrieves all records that contain the first term entered but not the second term. These operators must be used in UPPER CASE.
You can use the minus symbol - to exclude a term from the search. You can also use * as a wildcard.
