Latest News from MegaPesca FishFiles|
The European Parliament approved in principle the Commission's 2018 proposals for reforms of the EU fisheries control system. These include the tracking of all fishing vessels, electronic reporting of all catches, improving traceability of fishery products and harmonising sanctions for infringements of fisheries rules across the EU. In addition, Parliament introduced a simplified electronic logbook for small vessels under 12 metres, and require the creation of a 'Union register' of infringements centralising Member States information, as well as the use of uniform formats for a wide range of control documents throughout the EU. As regards the use of CCTV technology on board, Parliament adopted an amendment making it mandatory for a minimum percentage of fishing vessels over 12 metres, (considered to be at a high risk of non-compliance with the landing obligation).
