Kważi l-istokkijiet u s-sajd importanti kollha huma ġestiti permezz ta’ pjan pluriennali. Il-pjanijiet fihom l-għan tal-ġestjoni tal-istokkijiet tal-ħut, espressa f’termini ta’ mortalità mis-sajd u/jew id-daqs tal-istokk fil-mira. Xi pjanijiet jipprovdu wkoll direzzjonijiet dettaljati u mfassla apposta biex jintlaħaq l-għan. Xi pjanijiet pluriennali jinkludu r-restrizzjonijiet fuq l-isforzi tas-sajd bħala strument addizzjonali għall-qabdiet annwali totali permissibbli (TACs), u regoli speċifiċi ta’ kontroll.
Il-pjanijiet pluriennali skont il-PKS il-ġdida se jinkludu l-mira ta' sajd għal rendiment massimu sostenibbli u data ta’ skadenza biex jinkiseb dan l-għan. Se jkun fihom ukoll miżuri għall-implimentazzjoni tal-obbligu tal-ħatt l-art. Għandu jkun fihom ukoll salvagwardji għal azzjoni ta’ rimedju fejn meħtieġ, u klawżoli ta’ rieżami, fost oħrajn. Il-pjanijiet pluriennali jistgħu wkoll jinkludu miżuri tekniċi.
Il-Kummissjoni adottat proposta għal pjan multiannwali ta' stokkijiet multipli għall-immaniġġjar tas-sajd fil-Baltiku. Din hi l-ewwel proposta għal pjan ġdid wara li daħlet fis-seħħ il-PKS il-ġdida.
1. Recovery plan for cod: North Sea, Kattegat, Skagerrak, the eastern Channel, Irish Sea and West of Scotland
Agreed: February 2004, revised November 2008.
Areas covered: ICES III, IV, VIa, VIIa and VIId.
Target: originally, to increase the quantities of mature fish to sustainable levels; now, to reduce fishing mortality to rate which can maximise long-term sustainable yield. Initial fishing mortality target rate is set at 0.4. Rate of year-on-year changes in TAC varies with level of stock.
Special conditions: incentives for Member States to reduce discards and establish cod-avoidance programmes.
Agreed: April 2004.
Areas covered: Kattegat, Skagerrak, North Sea, the Channel, West of Scotland, all around Ireland and Bay of Biscay.
Target: increase the quantities of mature fish in the Northern hake stock to at least 140 000 tonnes.
Agreed: 20 December 2005.
Areas covered: Cantabrian Sea and Western Iberian Peninsula.
Target: increase the spawning stock biomass of Southern hake to 35 000 tonnes for two consecutive years. For Norway lobster, rebuild stocks to within safe biological limits.
Agreed: 23 February 2006.
Areas covered: Bay of Biscay (ICES VIIIa and VIIIb).
Target: bring spawning stock biomass to above the precautionary level of 13 000 tonnes in 2008.
Specific conditions: vessels catching more than 2 000 kg of sole per year will require a special permit. A ceiling is set of 100 kg of sole per sea trip.
Agreed: 7 May 2007.
Areas covered: Western Channel (ICES VIIe).
Target: reduce fishing mortality rate by 20 % compared to the average of 2003-2005 or achieve a fishing mortality rate of 0.27 for appropriate age groups – whichever is the higher.
Agreed: 11 June 2007.
Area covered: North Sea.
Target: ensure precautionary biomass for plaice of 230 000 tonnes and for sole of 35 000 tonnes by gradually reducing fishing mortality on sole from its current level of 0.35 to 0.2 and on plaice from 0.58 to 0.3.
Agreed: 18 September 2007.
Area covered: EU estuaries and rivers that flow into seas in ICES areas III, IV, VI, VII, VIII, IX and the Mediterranean.
Target: national eel management plans should enable at least 40 % of the level of adult eels, which in the absence of fishing and other human activity would migrate, to be able to escape to the sea to spawn.
Agreed: 18 September 2007.
Area covered: ICES SD 22-32.
Target: ensure sustainable exploitation by gradually reducing and maintaining mortality rates no lower than 0.6 for cod between 3 and 6 years in the Western Baltic and 0.3 for cod between 4 and 7 years in the Eastern Baltic.
Special conditions: exclusion of small-scale vessels below 8m. Flexibility for effort management for small-scale vessels between 8 and 12 metres in length.
6 October 2014 - Proposal for a REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL establishing a multiannual plan for the stocks of cod, herring and sprat in the Baltic Sea and the fisheries exploiting those stocks, amending Council Regulation (EC) No 2187/2005 and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 1098/2007 - COM(2014) 614
Agreed: 18 December 2008.
Area covered: international and EU waters in ICES zones Vb and VIb, and the northern part of ICES zone VIa excluding the Clyde.
Target: to reduce fishing mortality to rate which can maximise long-term sustainable yield. Target fishing mortality rate of 0.25 when stock is over 75 000 tonnes, and 0.2 when stock is between 75 000 and 50 000 tonnes. Closure triggered when stock falls below 50 000 tonnes. Rate of year-on-year changes in TAC varies with level of stock.
Council Regulation (EC) No 302/2009 of 6 April 2009 concerning a multiannual recovery plan for bluefin tuna in the eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean, amending Regulation (EC) No 43/2009 and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1559/2007
