Today, after long hours of discussion in Luxembourg, EU Fisheries Ministers reached an agreement on the catch limits for 2022 for the ten main commercial stocks in the Baltic Sea. Despite the huge quota cuts in the last years for key species such as cod and herring in certain areas, the poor environmental status of the Baltic Sea, and not overfishing, is affecting the sustainability of these stocks. Nevertheless, Ministers have decided to further reduce fishing opportunities for Western and Central herring as well as for Western cod. On the positive side, the Council has agreed to increase fishing opportunities for plaice, sprat, Bothnian herring and Gulf of Finland salmon. Despite these increases, the reality is that 2022 will still remain an extremely challenging year for the Baltic fishers.

A two-day long intensive negotiation finished this very morning with the difficult political compromise reached by EU Fisheries ministers on the catch limits for 2020. This agreement reconciles to objective to secure healthy stocks with the need to ensure the socio-economic sustainability of the EU fleet. The latter was acknowledged by the Council which, after a predominantly conservationist proposal from the European Commission, adopted a better-balanced decision in light of the socio-economic data provided by Member States. The industry will however face many challenges for next year due to the extreme quota reductions and restrictive measures adopted for key species such as cod in all EU waters.

This was one of the main results from the European Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF) annual report1 on the performance of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), particularly concerning the progress towards achieving sustainable fisheries. The scientific report shows that the stock status has significantly improved in the North-East Atlantic with an overall downward trend in the fishing pressure over the period 2003-2017. As a consequence, fish populations have been generally increasing since 2007, reaching in 2017 levels 36% higher than in 2003. However, further efforts are still needed, particularly in the Mediterranean.

Après 9 jours d’intenses discussions sur les thonidés de l’Atlantique lors de la réunion plénière de la Commission Internationale pour la Conservation des Thonidés de l’Atlantique (CICTA), les résultats sont en demi-teintes pour les flottilles européennes. Europêche constate avec une grande déception que la CICTA n’a pas été capable d’aboutir à un consensus visant à réviser le plan de gestion des thonidés tropicaux, en particulier pour le thon obèse jugé dans un état de surexploitation par le comité scientifique de la CICTA.

After 9 days of intensive discussions on Atlantic tunas at the plenary meeting of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), the results are perceived as being poor and unsatisfactory by the European fishing fleet. Europêche notes with great disappointment that ICCAT has not been able to reach a consensus to revise the management plan for tropical tunas, in particular for bigeye tuna, which is considered to be overexploited by ICCAT’s scientific committee (SCRS).

Last night, after long hours of discussion in Luxembourg, EU Fisheries Ministers reached an agreement on fishing opportunities for 2018 for the ten stocks in the Baltic Sea. The total allowable catches (TACs) were unanimously agreed in the framework of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) which aims to have all stocks fished at sustainable levels by 2020. For this purpose, Ministers’ decision will allow 7 out of 8 stocks for which complete scientific advice was available to be fished at maximum sustainable yield (MSY) levels, representing 98% of fish landings in volume. However, in view of the huge progress in the sustainable management of the Baltic Sea, fishermen expected better quota allocations for 2019.

Europêche has welcomed the clear message from the scientific community and DG MARE Director General, Mr Aguiar Machado, at Friday's “Scientific Seminar on Fisheries Science” organised by the European Commission. The scientific data presented evidenced in the North East Atlantic a drastic reduction in fishing pressure which is now stabilizing at sustainable levels. As a consequence, overexploited stocks decreased by 43% in the last decade and the proportion of stocks outside safe biological limits dropped by more than half during the same period. Fish populations have been generally increasing, reaching in 2016 biomass levels 39% higher than in 2003. The seminar also reviewed fisheries science challenges such as integrating socio-economic advice, multispecies management transition, climate change consequences and insufficient data processing.

President of Europêche, Javier Garat, has voiced the challenges faced by the European fishing sector due to the ambitious and rigid objectives set by the Common Fisheries Policy to achieve Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) levels by 2020, the implementation of the landing obligation and the uncertainty that Brexit is creating. The combination of all these factors, known in the sector as "the perfect storm", have been presented by Garat at the conference "How far has the EU come in ending overfishing?", held today in Brussels and organised by the environmental organization PEW.

Today, the European Parliament and the Council of the EU have reached a political agreement on the European Commission proposal establishing a multi-annual plan for demersal stocks in the North Sea, the second of its kind. Europêche welcomes the final adoption of this legislative proposal which, in the context of regionalisation, will bring decision-making closer to Member States and fishermen through the adoption of joint recommendations. However, many questions such as the implementation of landing obligation and negotiations with third countries still remain open and unclear.

Sr. Karmenu Vella, Comisario de Medio Ambiente, Asuntos Marítimos y Pesca, se reunió ayer con una delegación de Europêche que representa a la flota pesquera de larga distancia en Europa. Tanto el Comisario Vella como Europêche valoraron positivamente las principales mejoras introducidas en la dimensión exterior de la Política Pesquera Común (PPC), que sitúa a las flotas pesqueras de aguas alejadas de la UE en la vanguardia de la pesca sostenible en el mundo. El sector recordó la importancia de adoptar más acuerdos de pesca con terceros países que deban vincularse a las políticas comerciales y regionales. Europêche solicitó mayor presión diplomática a Noruega sobre la cuestión de la pesca de cangrejos de nieve y otras poblaciones importantes de peces en las aguas de Barents y Svalbard.

Ayer 12 de julio de 2017, la Comisión de Pesca del Parlamento Europeo adoptó su posición sobre la propuesta de la Comisión Europea por la que se establece un plan plurianual para las poblaciones demersales en el Mar del Norte. Europêche acoge con satisfacción el paso decisivo hacia la adopción final de esta propuesta legislativa que, en el contexto de la regionalización, acercará la toma de decisiones a los pescadores que operan en esta área. No obstante, determinadas medidas adoptadas por el PE, como la introducción de cuotas plurianuales de pesca para determinadas poblaciones, constituirían una amenaza para la aplicación de la obligación de desembarque y, por tanto, no abordarían la complejidad de las pesquerías mixtas.

La Comisión Europea (CE) ha lanzado su consulta anual sobre la fijación de las posibilidades de pesca para 2018. Como novedad, este año se acompaña de una Comunicación que, además de establecer los principios tradicionales que sustentan la propuesta de las CE para las cuotas pesqueras del Atlántico y del Mar del Norte (TAC) en 2018, ofrece una visión general de los progresos realizados hacia el logro objetivos de la Política Común de Pesca (PPC). Europêche está muy satisfecho con este nuevo enfoque, ya que proporciona a los ciudadanos europeos información objetiva de manera digerible. El sector también acoge con satisfacción las tendencias al alza en muchas poblaciones de peces y niveles de explotación sostenibles en toda Europa como lo revelan los datos científicos más recientes.

Antes del Consejo de Pesca de diciembre de 2016, la EAPO y Europêche han enviado a los miembros del Consejo un documento de posición conjunto con observaciones generales y recomendaciones pertinentes sobre unas 25 poblaciones de peces. Como tal, la industria pesquera está pidiendo al Consejo de Ministros de Pesca que no adopte el calendario para alcanzar el máximo rendimiento sostenible como dogma, sino aplicar un enfoque pragmático y de sentido común para alcanzar los objetivos de la Política Pesquera Común (PPC).
