Speech by Karmenu Vella - Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries
Sustainable maritime tourism can inject much needed impetus into the economy of Europe's coastal regions but is dependent on a healthy environment and proper management to do so. That will be the message delivered by the European Commissioner for the Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella, at the opening of the Maritime Spatial Planning and Tourism conference in Venice tomorrow.
Following the restoration of constitutional order in Guinea-Bissau, the EU and Guinea-Bissau have signed a new three-year fisheries Protocol under the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement between the two parties. EU boats, mostly from Spain, Portugal, France, Greece and Italy, will now be able to resume fishing in local waters following a two year interruption.

Long term management plan for the stock of sole in the Western Channel

Public consultation

Council Regulation (EC) No 509/2007 establishing a multiannual plan for the sustainable exploitation of the stock of sole in the Western Channel requires that the rate of progress towards the targets of the plan be evaluated in 2009 and in each third successive year.

On the basis of the Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF) advice, the Commission should then propose new targets after considering the alternatives provided by STECF and their impacts. For this, an impact assessment needs to be carried out.

The Commission may then present improvements to the Council and the European Parliament. 

As part of this exercise a public consultation based on the non-paper was launched in May 2011. 

The consultation was closed on 8 July 2011.
