European Parliament and the Council reached an agreement on the Commission's
proposal establishing a multi-annual plan for fish stocks in the western
Mediterranean Sea, covering mainly areas that concern France, Italy
and Spain. The agreement will introduce a five-year transitional period
to progressively decrease fishing mortality towards the target MSY.
The main measures include an EU fishing effort regime for all trawl
vessels operating in the western Mediterranean and a 3-month closure
area for the protection of juveniles. Powers are granted for setting
non-discriminatory limits and technical measures for recreational
fisheries. Control measures will apply in order to monitor the fishing
effort regime. Commissioner Vella said that the agreement was "a
momentous leap forward in delivering concrete EU commitment to restore
vital fish stocks and prevent a loss of jobs".
