Europe-Mauritania fisheries protocol

The second round of negotiations between the Mauritania government and the European Union (EU) started Sunday at Nouakchott.
The Mauritanian team in charge of the negotiations is reports to Cheikh Ould Ahemed, Technical Advisor to the Minister of Fisheries and Maritime Economy. The EU Delegation is led by the director of the Fisheries Commission to the EU, Roberto Cesari.
The first round of these negotiations took place in Paris. The current fisheries protocol between Mauritania and Europe will come to an end on the 31st July 2014. It allows the European fleet to fish approximately 300,000 tons of fish per year in the Mauritanian seas. La Mauritania has an Atlantic coastline of 700 km and its waters are rich in fish.
However, the fishing agreement with Europe is subject to regular critics from national and international NGOs, denouncing the overfishing of certain species.
