Total allowable catches and quotas for 2010

The 2986th Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries held in Brussels on 14-16 December 2009  reached a political agreement on a draft regulation setting fishing opportunities for 2010 for Community vessels in the waters of the Atlantic, the Channel and the North Sea (TACs and quotas for the Baltic and Black Seas were already adopted on 20 and 27 November). In line with long-term conservation management plans applicable for certain stocks, the Council agreed to reductions, compared to 2009, for some species.
