Safeguarding Coastal Waters

Ian Hudghton MEP, President of the Scottish National Party, welcomed a vote on 9 October 2012 in the European Parliament which will ensure that Europe's fishing nations retain control of their coastal waters. The unanimous vote in the parliament's fisheries committee was on a legislative report drafted by Mr Hudghton seeking to renew the current control regime within 12 miles of each EU state. The full parliament is expected to formally adopt the report on 21st November. At present resources within each 12-mile coastal zone are the responsibility of each fishing nation. The current regulations are due to expire on 31st December of this year, which could potentially open up all coastal waters to vessels from across Europe. Mr Hudghton was nominated by the fisheries committee to steer emergency legislation through the parliament to prevent this from happening.
