On her taking-up office yesterday the EFCA said, “It’s a new day at the European Fisheries Control Agency – EFCA!
“Today, Dr. Susan Steele takes office as Executive Director.
“Dr. Steele brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the agency’s mission of promoting the highest common standards for control, inspection and surveillance under the CFP.
In reply, Dr Steele said “I’m honoured to be joining the fantastic team in EFCA. Thank you for the really warm welcome!”
