Bluefin tuna in the eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean

01-04-2020

The eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean bluefin tuna was long a symbol of overfishing and fisheries mismanagement. Over the past decade, the stock has recovered, following the rebuilding measures introduced by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT). The European Union is now transposing the ICCAT recommendation to move from the recovery measures to a bluefin tuna management plan.

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing

17-02-2020

The IUU Regulation (1005/2008) is the core of the EU’s legal framework for action against global IUU fishing. Its primary objective is to prevent, deter and eliminate the trade of IUU-caught products into the EU. One of its key components is a multiple-step procedure for dealing with non-EU countries considered uncooperative in the fight against IUU fishing. Fourth edition. This infographic further updates an earlier one of February 2019. For more information on IUU fishing and the EU's IUU Regulation ...

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.

This briefing is one in a set looking at the Commissioners-designate and their portfolios as put forward by Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen. Each candidate faces a three-hour public hearing, organised by one or more parliamentary committees. After that process, those committees will judge the candidates' suitability for the role based on 'their general competence, European commitment and personal independence', as well as their 'knowledge of their prospective portfolio and their communication skills'. At the end of the hearings process, Parliament votes on the proposed Commission as a bloc, and under the Treaties may only reject the entire College of Commissioners, rather than individual candidates. The Briefing provides an overview of key issues in the portfolio areas, as well as Parliament's activity in the last term in that field. It also includes a brief introduction to the candidate.

Overhauling fisheries technical measures

26-08-2019

Technical measures in fisheries govern the different fishing practices that can be used to catch fish, as well as the areas and seasons for fishing. Aimed at limiting unwanted catches and the impact of fishing on marine ecosystems, EU technical measures have developed over time into a notoriously complicated regulatory structure, which came to be seen as a plethora of ineffective rules under rigid governance. The European Parliament and Council have adopted a new legislative framework that changes ...

Technical measures in fisheries govern the different fishing practices that can be used to catch fish, as well as the areas and seasons for fishing. Aimed at limiting unwanted catches and the impact of fishing on marine ecosystems, EU technical measures have developed over time into a notoriously complicated regulatory structure, which came to be seen as a plethora of ineffective rules under rigid governance. The European Parliament and Council have adopted a new legislative framework that changes the governance structure of technical measures. The new regulation is designed to simplify the previous system, to increase its flexibility through a regionalised approach adapted to the specificities of each EU sea basin, and to optimise the contribution of the technical measures to the objectives of the common fisheries policy. The text also provides for a total ban on electric pulse trawl fishing from 1 July 2021, with the possibility for Member States to immediately prohibit or restrict this type of fishing in their coastal waters. Fourth edition of a briefing originally drafted by Jean Weissenberger. The ‘EU Legislation in Progress’ briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Multiannual plan for demersal fisheries in the western Mediterranean

19-07-2019

The European Parliament and Council have adopted a new multiannual plan for the western Mediterranean fisheries exploiting several stocks of fish and crustaceans living close to the sea bottom (i.e. 'demersal fisheries'). Most of these stocks have long been overfished and are now in an alarming state. The new plan aims to reverse this trend and ensure that fishing activities are environmentally sustainable, and capable of securing economic and social benefits. It concerns fishing fleets from Italy ...

The European Parliament and Council have adopted a new multiannual plan for the western Mediterranean fisheries exploiting several stocks of fish and crustaceans living close to the sea bottom (i.e. 'demersal fisheries'). Most of these stocks have long been overfished and are now in an alarming state. The new plan aims to reverse this trend and ensure that fishing activities are environmentally sustainable, and capable of securing economic and social benefits. It concerns fishing fleets from Italy, Spain and France, totalling almost 10 900 vessels. The new regulation introduces a fishing-effort regime for all trawlers operating in the region, under which the Council will set each year, on the basis of scientific advice, the maximum number of fishing days for each fleet category by Member State. In addition, the plan restricts trawlers from operating in waters shallower than 100 m located within 6 nautical miles of the coast, for three months per year, to reserve the coastal zone for more selective fishing gear. The plan also establishes regional cooperation among the Member States concerned, with a view to developing provisions on the obligation to land all catches and on the conservation of resources through technical measures.

Les politiques de l’Union – Au service des citoyens: La pêche

28-06-2019

L’Union européenne est seule responsable de la conservation de ses ressources marines de pêche, lesquelles sont gérées dans le cadre de la politique commune de la pêche (PCP). Depuis sa création en 1983 et les réformes décennales régulièrement effectuées depuis, la PCP a parcouru un long chemin. Le cadre actuel est issu de la réforme de la PCP de 2013 et vise à garantir la viabilité environnementale, économique et sociale de la pêche de l’Union.

L’Union européenne est seule responsable de la conservation de ses ressources marines de pêche, lesquelles sont gérées dans le cadre de la politique commune de la pêche (PCP). Depuis sa création en 1983 et les réformes décennales régulièrement effectuées depuis, la PCP a parcouru un long chemin. Le cadre actuel est issu de la réforme de la PCP de 2013 et vise à garantir la viabilité environnementale, économique et sociale de la pêche de l’Union. La PCP comprend un instrument financier spécial à cet effet, le Fonds européen pour les affaires maritimes et la pêche (FEAMP), doté d’un budget de 6,4 milliards d’euros pour la période 2014-2020. L’un des objectifs introduits par la réforme de 2013 est de parvenir à exploiter l’ensemble des stocks à des niveaux viables d’ici 2020. Elle prévoit également plusieurs grands instruments permettant de progresser en ce sens. L’adoption de plans pluriannuels est notamment devenue une priorité afin de garantir une gestion des stocks à long terme. Une obligation de débarquement de toutes les prises a été conçue afin de mettre un terme au rejet des poissons à la mer. La réforme a également introduit la régionalisation de la prise de décision ainsi que la possibilité d’adopter des mesures de conservation en fonction des recommandations communes des États membres concernés. L’application de la PCP réformée ayant été la principale caractéristique de la législature 2014-2019, les travaux législatifs ont avancé sur plusieurs sujets importants. Plusieurs plans pluriannuels ont été lancés et quatre d’entre eux, à savoir sur la pêche en mer Baltique, en mer du Nord, dans les eaux occidentales et en Méditerranée occidentale sont à présent en vigueur. L’obligation de débarquement a comme prévu été progressivement mise en œuvre entre 2015 et 2019. L’Union a adopté un cadre actualisé concernant la collecte de données sur la pêche afin de faciliter les décisions de gestion ainsi qu’un nouveau système d’autorisations de pêche, améliorant la surveillance des navires de l’Union qui pêchent hors des eaux de l’Union. Les activités de l’Union ont également porté sur divers aspects de la dimension externe de la PCP, tels que le passage d’accords de pêche avec des pays tiers et la participation à la gouvernance internationale en matière de pêche. À l’avenir, il convient de continuer à progresser sur des questions telles que l’adoption de plans pluriannuels et la révision du régime de contrôle de la pêche. Le FEAMP sera renouvelé dans le cadre du prochain budget pluriannuel de l’Union pour la période 2021-2027. Il conviendra également de faire le bilan des progrès accomplis quant à l’application de la dernière réforme et la réalisation de ses objectifs en vue des prochaines évolutions de la PCP. Le présent document est une mise à jour d’une note plus ancienne, publiée avant les élections européennes de 2019.
