Revising the fisheries control system

07-11-2019

On 30 May 2018, the European Commission issued a proposal to revise the fisheries control system by modernising and simplifying the monitoring of fisheries activities, improving the enforcement and updating a control system that was conceived before the 2013 CFP reform. The revision centres on the amendment of the Control Regulation 1224/2009.

On 30 May 2018, the European Commission issued a proposal to revise the fisheries control system by modernising and simplifying the monitoring of fisheries activities, improving the enforcement and updating a control system that was conceived before the 2013 CFP reform. The revision centres on the amendment of the Control Regulation 1224/2009. The proposal introduces requirements for more complete fisheries data, including an electronic tracking system for all fishing vessels, fully digitised reporting of catches with electronic logbooks and landing declarations applicable to all vessels, and catch-declaration rules for recreational fisheries. It improves traceability through digitalised identification and declaration along the supply chain for all fishery and aquaculture products, whether from EU fisheries or imported. The enforcement rules are thoroughly revised, with a common list of activities defined as serious infringements and corresponding sanctions, as well as a strengthened point system. The proposal also revises the mandate of the European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA), to fully align its objectives with the CFP and to upgrade its inspection powers, and Regulation 1005/2008 on illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, to introduce a digital catch certification scheme for imported fishery products.

Multiannual plan for fisheries in the Western Waters

05-04-2019

The European Parliament and Council adopted a new multiannual plan for management of fisheries in the Western Waters, an area of the north-east Atlantic along the western coast of the EU. The plan covers fisheries exploiting stocks of fish and crustaceans living close to the sea bottom (i.e. 'demersal fisheries'), including several deep-sea stocks. It aims to ensure that these stocks are exploited sustainably and that their management is based on the most up-to-date scientific information. The fishing ...

The European Parliament and Council adopted a new multiannual plan for management of fisheries in the Western Waters, an area of the north-east Atlantic along the western coast of the EU. The plan covers fisheries exploiting stocks of fish and crustaceans living close to the sea bottom (i.e. 'demersal fisheries'), including several deep-sea stocks. It aims to ensure that these stocks are exploited sustainably and that their management is based on the most up-to-date scientific information. The fishing fleet concerned mainly includes vessels from Belgium, Germany, France, Ireland, Spain, Portugal and the United Kingdom. The new plan follows the pattern set by the 2018 North Sea multiannual plan. It allows a certain flexibility in setting fishing opportunities, by defining ranges of fishing mortality based on the best available scientific advice, and introduces safeguard measures to restore stocks when they fall below safe biological limits. The quantified values for fishing mortality or biomass levels are provided by the latest scientific advice available, and directly used by the Council when fixing fishing opportunities. Of particular importance in the eventuality of Brexit, the plan covers British waters off the western and southern UK coast, setting the stage for future fisheries cooperation in the area.

Multiannual plan for small pelagic fish stocks in the Adriatic Sea

09-11-2018

On 9 October 2018, Parliament’s Committee on Fisheries (PECH) adopted its report on a proposed multiannual plan to manage fisheries of small pelagic fish stocks (anchovy and sardine) in the Adriatic Sea. These stocks, which are in a poor state, are managed under a complex legal framework at EU, national and international level. They are exploited mainly by Italian and Croatian fishing vessels. Multiannual fisheries management plans are essential tools for the sustainable exploitation of marine resources ...

On 9 October 2018, Parliament’s Committee on Fisheries (PECH) adopted its report on a proposed multiannual plan to manage fisheries of small pelagic fish stocks (anchovy and sardine) in the Adriatic Sea. These stocks, which are in a poor state, are managed under a complex legal framework at EU, national and international level. They are exploited mainly by Italian and Croatian fishing vessels. Multiannual fisheries management plans are essential tools for the sustainable exploitation of marine resources, offering notably better predictability over time and a framework for improved cooperation between the Member States concerned at sea basin level. With the new plan for Adriatic small pelagic stocks, the Commission proposed to introduce a major shift in fisheries management in this area, currently based on fishing effort, by framing a system of setting total allowable catches (TACs). The PECH report, however, supports maintaining the current fishing effort regime and opposes the introduction of TACs. It also requires that catch limits for small pelagics are set in 2019 at the level of the 2014 catches, and reduced by 4 % annually between 2020 and 2022.

Revision of the Fisheries Control System

25-10-2018

The Commission is proposing a revision of the Fisheries Control System to enhance its effectiveness and efficiency by adapting it to the prevailing legal situation and to current technological possibilities in the field of fisheries control. This initial appraisal of the Commission’s impact assessment accompanying the proposal views the impact assessment as a well-balanced, comprehensive and transparent analysis based on sound data and research which makes a persuasive case for the proposal.

Multiannual plan for North Sea demersal fisheries

20-09-2018

The European Parliament and Council have adopted a new multiannual plan to manage fisheries in the North Sea and some adjacent maritime areas. The plan covers demersal species (i.e. species living close to the sea bottom). These stocks are exploited by various fishing fleets using various fishing gear, but often catching different species together (mixed fisheries). The North Sea demersal fisheries are conducted by several thousand EU vessels, mainly from Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands ...

The European Parliament and Council have adopted a new multiannual plan to manage fisheries in the North Sea and some adjacent maritime areas. The plan covers demersal species (i.e. species living close to the sea bottom). These stocks are exploited by various fishing fleets using various fishing gear, but often catching different species together (mixed fisheries). The North Sea demersal fisheries are conducted by several thousand EU vessels, mainly from Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom, and represent over 70 % of EU catches in this area. The plan introduces new rules on how the catch limits for each stock must be set, so that it is fished sustainably. The ranges within which the catch limits are set are based on the best available scientific advice, and updated regularly to take account of the most recent data. The plan also contains safeguard measures to restore stocks when they fall below safe biological limits, and sets a framework for improved cooperation between the Member States concerned at sea-regional level.

Investigación para la Comisión PECH - Obligación de desembarque y especies de estrangulamiento en pesquerías multiespecíficas y mixtas – El mar del Norte

16-04-2018

Las pesquerías demersales en el mar del Norte son extremadamente mixtas. Desde 2015 se han implantado varias herramientas de la PPC y otros ajustes políticos que han contribuido a abordar la obligación de desembarque pero no han incentivado la reducción de los descartes. Numerosos problemas potenciales del estrangulamiento son de carácter principalmente político, relativos al reparto de la cuota más que a la escasez de la misma. Se considera que algunas situaciones específicas (como la de la solla ...

Las pesquerías demersales en el mar del Norte son extremadamente mixtas. Desde 2015 se han implantado varias herramientas de la PPC y otros ajustes políticos que han contribuido a abordar la obligación de desembarque pero no han incentivado la reducción de los descartes. Numerosos problemas potenciales del estrangulamiento son de carácter principalmente político, relativos al reparto de la cuota más que a la escasez de la misma. Se considera que algunas situaciones específicas (como la de la solla, la merluza y los elasmobranquios) son difíciles de abordar con las actuales herramientas de la PPC. Es necesario promover enfoques basados en resultados con documentación completa de las capturas.

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing

24-11-2017

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is widely recognised as a significant environmental, economic and social problem. It represents a major threat to marine ecosystems, an unfair disadvantage for responsible fishermen, and a disruption for the seafood market. Combatting IUU fishing has become a key means for achieving sustainable management of global fisheries. While the root cause of IUU fishing is states' failure to discipline vessels operating under their flag, tackling this phenomenon ...

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is widely recognised as a significant environmental, economic and social problem. It represents a major threat to marine ecosystems, an unfair disadvantage for responsible fishermen, and a disruption for the seafood market. Combatting IUU fishing has become a key means for achieving sustainable management of global fisheries. While the root cause of IUU fishing is states' failure to discipline vessels operating under their flag, tackling this phenomenon requires a many-sided approach and involves a whole range of international instruments. These instruments define a system of mutually reinforcing measures, tailored for each of the different responsibilities that countries have over their fishing vessels (as flag states), their waters (as coastal states), access to their ports (as port states), and access to their market (as market states). In response to this global problem, the EU has set up a thorough control system, in particular the IUU Regulation 1005/2008, which remains to date a unique piece of fisheries legislation worldwide. Intended to prevent the import of IUU-caught products into the EU, the IUU Regulation is structured around key market-related measures, such as a catch certification scheme, which is the first unilateral scheme of this type, and a procedure for non-cooperating third countries that may lead to trade sanctions. A broad range of complementary measures reinforces this approach.
