Indian Ocean Tuna Commission - EU position

The Council adopted a decision on the position to be adopted, on behalf of the EU, in the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC).
The IOTC is a regional fisheries management organisation (RFMO) responsible for the management of tuna and tuna-like species in the Indian Ocean and adjacent seas. It works to achieve this by promoting cooperation among its contracting parties (Members) and cooperating non-contracting parties in order to ensure the conservation and appropriate utilisation of fish stocks and encouraging the sustainable development of fisheries. The EU became a contracting party to the IOTC in 1995. Conservation and management measures decided in the framework of IOTC may become binding upon the EU.
The decision provides that in the framework of the IOTC, the EU shall act in accordance with the objectives and principles pursued by the EU within the reformed Common Fisheries Policy (CPF) notably through the precautionary approach and the aims related to maximum sustainable yield as laid down in regulation 1380/2013. This decision includes negotiating directives to be used when deciding the position to be taken by the EU in the annual meetings of the IOTC Commission. The next annual meeting of the IOTC will take place in Colombo, Sri Lanka on 1st June 2014.
