Multi-annual recovery plan for bluefin tuna - Adoption

The 3173rd Council meeting on Environment held in Luxembourg on 11 June 2012 adopted an amendment to regulation 302/2009 concerning a multi-annual recovery plan for bluefin tuna in the eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean following a first reading agreement with the European Parliament (16/12).
At its Annual Meeting in 2010, the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) adopted a recommendation amending the recovery plan for bluefin tuna in the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean.
In order to rebuild the stock, the ICCAT recovery plan was modified to provide for a further reduction of the total allowable catch (TAC) to strengthen measures to reduce the fishing capacity and to reinforce the control measures, particularly as regards the transfer and the caging operations for tuna kept in farms.
The Community has been a party to ICCAT since 1997 and the recommendations become binding on contracting parties which do not object to them. The EU has a responsibility to apply recommendations adopted.
The purpose of this regulation is to transpose into EU law the ICCAT recommendation modifying the recovery plan for bluefin tuna in the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean.
