Latest News from MegaPesca FishFiles
Due to the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the Union, numerous stocks have become shared stocks. The UK, EU and Norway met for the first time in January this year to discuss stock shares, and in March signed a trilateral arrangement on jointly managed fisheries stocks in the North Sea for 2021, establishing the total allowable catches (TAC) and quota sharing covering annually over 636,000 tonnes of fish, operational until July 2021. The agreement provides for the joint management of stocks of cod, haddock, saithe, whiting, plaice, and herring, in most cases adopting maximum sustainable yield (MSY) levels, in line with the scientific advice from the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas (ICES). This results in quota reductions in 2021 for saithe (-25%), plaice (-2.3%) and herring (-7.4%) but increases in haddock (+20%) and whiting (+19%). The parties agreed to continue implementing a range of additional measures, to protect adult and juvenile cod, such as area closures.
