New Fisheries Partnership agreement between EU and The Cook Islands

The last Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries, held in Brussels on 15 July 2013, adopted a decision authorising the European Commission to open negotiations on behalf of the EU for a fisheries partnership agreement (FPA) with the Cook Islands.
The agreement would principally cover surpluses of tuna stocks and would stay in line with conservation measures adopted in Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) – which seeks to address problems in the management of high seas fisheries resulting from unregulated fishing, over-capitalization, excessive fleet capacity, vessel re-flagging to escape controls.
The Cook Islands comprises 15 small islands scattered over some 2 million km² of the South Pacific Ocean. You can read more on the situation of the country and the relations it has with the EU here.
