Council conclusions: Bluefin tuna documentation programme

The 3025th Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries held in Luxembourg on 29 June 2010 adopted a regulation establishing a catch documentation programme for bluefin tuna, following a first reading agreement with the European Parliament under the ordinary legislative procedure. The regulation, which amends regulation 1984/2003, implements conservation and management measures adopted by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), by incorporating the provisions of the ICCAT bluefin tuna catch documentation programme with a view to identifying the origin of all bluefin tuna. As part of the measures to regulate stocks of bluefin tuna, to improve the quality and reliability of statistical data and in order to prevent, deter and eliminate illegal fishing, ICCAT adopted at its annual meeting in Recife (Brazil), on 15 November 2009, amendments to the bluefin tuna catch documentation programme. These amendments entered into force on 1 June 2010 and need to be implemented by the EU.
