Conference report published.
About 60 stakeholders from the North Sea region met on 20 and 21 June in The Hague, Netherlands for a workshop on strategic cooperation on blue growth in the North Sea area, organised by the European Commission.
The European Parliament voted today on the 2nd reading of the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a multi-annual plan for the stocks of cod, herring and sprat in the Baltic Sea and the fisheries exploiting those stocks, also known as the 'Baltic Plan' (this Regulation amends Council Regulation (EC) No 2187/2005 and repeals Council Regulation (EC) No 1098/2007).

Interested parties were invited to express their views on the 26 questions identified in the consultation paper, and to present their opinions as to what further measures would be appropriate to reduce unwanted catches in European fisheries.

The consultation closed on 24 June 2008.
