EU Fisheries Ministers agreed on fishing catch limits in the Atlantic, North Sea and Black Sea for 2018, following negotiations at the Agriculture and Fisheries Council on 11 - 12 December. As a result, nine more stocks will be exploited at their maximum sustainable yield, bringing the total to 53 stocks (compared to 5 in 2009). Total allowable catches were reduced for 23 stocks. It was agreed to close eel fisheries for three months during their migration period and to strengthen measures for conservation of sea bass, affecting both commercial and recreational fishermen. Commissioner Vella stated that “With today's agreement two-thirds of fish in the Atlantic and the North Sea will be subject to sustainable catch limits next year”.
