EU: Fishing opportunities for 2013 to be determined

The European Commission presented its proposal for next year's (2013) fishing opportunities for fish stocks which are jointly managed with third parties, such as Norway or Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs) throughout the world.
Commissioner Maria Damanaki, in charge of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, said "in these negotiations, the Commission will do its utmost to obtain the best outcome for our fishermen while also respecting scientific advice."
Today's proposal as well as an earlier proposal dated 23 October 2012 relating to fish stocks in the Atlantic and the North Sea will be discussed at the Fisheries Council meeting in Brussels in December.
For fish stocks shared with third countries, the European Commission negotiates towards the end of each year with these countries (Norway, Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Russia) the quantities of fish to be caught in the following year, based on scientific advice.
For the stocks in international waters and for highly migratory species, such as tuna, the European Commission negotiates fishing opportunities in the framework of Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs). These must subsequently be transposed into EU law.
International negotiations for many of the stocks concerned are still on-going. The proposal therefore includes relatively few figures at this stage and it will be completed once negotiations with third parties and organizations have taken place.
