The European Ministers in charge of Fisheries meet today in Brussels. They will try to find a political agreement on fishing opportunities for certain deep-sea stocks for 2013 and 2014, and also have an exchange of views on the annual consultations between the EU and Norway. Finally the Council will be briefed on the EU-Morocco agreement on agriculture, the error rate in rural development, the EU food model, the Norway pout stocks and the EU-Mauritania fisheries agreement. Earlier this week, the Spanish Minister for Agriculture, Food and Environment, Miguel Arias Cañete, requested the European Commission to "renegotiate the terms of the fishing agreement" with Mauritania. The new fishing agreement signed between the EU and Mauritania last July could mean lower weight of the fishing activity in the Spanish ports of La Luz and Las Palmas.
