New fisheries agreements with Seychelles and São Tomé and Príncipe

The Council of Ministers has approved two new fisheries agreements with Seychelles and São Tomé and Príncipe. The agreements allow EU vessels to catch up to 7000 tons per year in São Tomé’s waters and 52000 tons per year in Seychelles’ waters until 2014. It also vows to compensate governments with 65€ per ton of caught fish, the fishermen adding another 35€ per ton). In June, the European Parliament had already given its accord to the agreement. The EU is currently preparing a new fisheries partnership with Cape Verde worth another 5000 tons per year and has opened negotiations for a partnership with Gabon.
