ICCAT Annual meeting

At the 3193rd Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries held in Luxembourg on 22 and 23 October 2012,  Ministers held an exchange of views regarding the annual meeting of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) from 12 to 19 November 2012 in Agadir, Morroco. Some member states pointed out that the available scientific data submitted with a view to preparing the annual ICCAT meeting confirmed the correct implementation of the measures imposed on fishermen for many years and show a recovery of the bluefin tuna stock. In line with scientific opinion, they asked that the total allowable catch (TAC) be raised for this year.
During the annual meeting in Agadir in November this year, the ICCAT Commission is expected to review the Bluefin tuna recovery plan on the basis of the SCRS stock assessment. This would involve  establishing new TACs and, where appropriate, other management measures.
