April 2023.The European Union will make four proposals at the next Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) session taking place from 8 to 12 May 2023, with a view to improving sustainability of over-exploited tuna stocks in the Indian Ocean. A multiannual plan for the management of tropical tunas would set catch limits. A new control plan would allow boarding and inspection of vessels in the high seas. New rules for the IOTC Compliance Committee would ensure that appropriate sanctions are applied. The EU will also seek to replace IOTC Resolution 23/02 which introduced a 72-day ban on purse seine fishing on drifting FADs. Several IOTC members have lodged an objection to that resolution, including the EU, the Comoros, Oman, Kenya, the Seychelles, and the Philippines. The EU proposes to replace the ban with strengthened controls on the number of FADs and improve their marking and recovery to limit plastic pollution.
