Environmental pollution, unfavourable spawning conditions as well as intensive fishing and other factors have negative influence upon the state of the fish stocks. As a result of stock fluctuation and changes in fishing quotas allocated annually at the EU level, Latvian fishery companies have difficulties to plan their future activities; consequently, increasing attention is being paid to opportunities of facilitating competitiveness.
