Fishing opportunities in the Baltic Sea for 2013

At the 3193rd Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries held in Luxembourg on 22 and 23 October 2012, Ministers reached a political agreement on fishing opportunities for 2013 for certain fish stocks in the Baltic Sea. This agreement lays down for 2013 the maximum quantities of fish from specific stocks that can be caught in the Baltic Sea (total allowable catches (TACs) and quotas), as well as the fishing effort limits for Baltic cod stocks.
The proposed measures have been established taking into account available scientific advice and, in particular, the reports drawn up by the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) and the Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF). However, catch limits and fishing effort limits for cod stocks in the Baltic Sea are established in accordance with the rules laid down in regulation 1098/2007 establishing a multiannual plan. A key element to be considered is that the final agreement was based on a proposal put forward by the member states concerned, making it a first example of responsible and successful regional cooperation.
