Atlantic Sea Part 2

Type: Stockshots [long]   Référence: I071434   Durée: 45:00  Lieu: Spain | Vigo | Boulogne | Ireland
European Union is surrounded by oceans and seas. The EU has some 70 000 km of coastline. Almost half of all EU citizens live within 50 km of the sea and almost 40% of the EU’s GDP is generated in the maritime regions. In its proposals for a major reform of the EU Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), the European Commission has set out a radical approach to fisheries management in Europe. The plans aim at securing both fish stocks and fishermen's livelihood for the future while putting an end to overfishing and depletion of fish stocks. The reform will introduce a decentralised approach to science-based fisheries management by region and sea basin, and introduce better governance standards in the EU and on the international level through sustainable fisheries agreements. This new package is being submitted to the European Parliament and Council for adoption under the ordinary legislative procedure (co-decision). The Commission aims for adoption and entry into force of the new framework by 1 January 2013. Later this year the Commission plans to put forward a new funding mechanism for fisheries and maritime policy, in line with the Multi-Annual Financial Framework. The Atlantic Ocean is one of the most important fishing areas of the EU. The Bay of Biscay and the Iberian Coast stretch from Southern Brittany to the South of Portugal are the cradle of Europe's maritime power. Here, there is still an active fishing industry, with local small-scale fishing in the Bay of Biscay, and deep-sea fleets based in Brittany and Galicia.

00:10:32 Exterior views of the European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA) in Vigo, Spain (2 shots)The European Fisheries Control Agency is a European Union body established in 2005 to organize operational coordination of fisheries control and inspection activities by the Member States and to assist them to cooperate so as to comply with the rules of the Common EU Fisheries Policy in order to ensure its effective and uniform application. EFCA has its official seat in Vigo, Spain. 00:00:14
00:10:46 Views of the coordination room: staff monitoring screens indicating the place of inspections, the position of fishing vessels in EU waters, etc. (7 shots) EFCA coordinates activities on land and in Community and international waters, as appropriate. This is done through the joint deployment plans, the vehicle through which the EFCA organises the deployment of national human and material means of control and inspection pooled by Member States. The deployment of pooled national means is coordinated by the EFCA through coordination centres in charge in a Member State or the presence of national coordinators is at EFCA premises.While Member States are responsible for applying the rules on their own territory, in waters under their sovereignty and jurisdiction and on fishing vessels flying their flag, the Agency has been designed to act as a facilitator enhancing cooperation and ensuring that legislation is implemented in a systematic, uniform and effective way. In international waters, the Commission has entrusted the Agency with the inspection activities, both at sea and at landing, which are delivering the international obligations of the EU. 00:00:35

00:25:35 French Research Institute for Exploration of the Sea (IFREMER); departure of a research boat at night from the port of Boulogne-sur-Mer (5 shots)During this 6 week expedition, the IFREMER scientists will monitor sea water pollution levels and also the levels of fish stocks of different species. Fish are then classified by species, weighed and measured. The contents of its stomach are taken and analyzed in order to monitor the fishes' exact position in the feed chain. In order to determine the age of fish, scientists remove the otoliths from fish and bring them to the laboratories in Boulogne-sur-Mer for further analysis. 00:00:27

00:29:59 Analyse of the otoliths at the sclerochronology laboratory (11 shots)Sclerochronology is the study of physical and chemical variations in the hard tissues of invertebrates, coralline algae and fish, and the temporal context in which they formed. Scales, bones, fin rays and otoliths have all been used to determine the age of fish, since these and other bony parts of fish often form yearly rings (annuli) like those of a tree. However, otoliths generally provide the most accurate ages, particularly in old fish. The easiest way to "read" an otolith is to take a slice, or cross section, out of the otolith with a special saw and then count the rings under a microscope. The sclerochronology pole at IFREMER's headquarters in Boulogne-sur-Mer is a reference at national level. Every year, thousands of calcified pieces removed from fish are sent here to estimate the growth rate of many different species of fish. 00:00:45
