Part of European fleet may continue fishing in Mauritania

The European Union (EU) and Mauritania have reached an agreement that will allow EU vessels fishing for shrimp and small pelagic fish in the Mauritanian fishing ground to continue doing so until 15 December, 2014.
However, European ships that since August 2012 have been catching tuna and demersal species during a transition period, must leave the African country waters today.
The bilateral decision implies a partial victory for the community fleet as the Mauritanian government had warned that all European vessels had to leave the fishery on 1 August this year.
According to the compromise agreement defined in Nouakchott, European ships will be given the opportunity to continue fishing for 24 months from the first period of the authorization granted to the corresponding segment of the fleet: 2012 for demersal fleets (hake and other black demersal species) and tuna (purse seiner, longliners and pole and line), and 2013 for shrimp and small pelagic fish fleets. As a result, demersal and tuna fleets will have to stop fishing from 1 August, while others may continue their activities until 15 December.
