Nieuws
The Bluefin Tuna purse seine fishing season, lasting from 26 May to 24 June 2015, has finished with no major issues that may indicate systemic overfishing or illegal fishing activities of Bluefin Tuna by EU vessels. It was the first time in almost a decade that the EU fishermen benefited from an increased quota as BFT fishery has recovered significantly. Although scientists still need to assess the state of the stocks later this year, it is clear that the successful implementation of stricter control measures by the EU to fight IUU and overfishing has played a significant role in the recovery of the stock.
The European Commission has adopted a proposal for a regulation, upgrading the EU framework for the collection, management and use of data for fisheries.
The Bluefin tuna fishery is regulated by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) to which the EU is a contracting party.

Meerjarenplannen

Beheer van de visstand

Bijna alle belangrijke bestanden en de visgronden worden beheerd volgens een meerjarenplan. De plannen bevatten de doelstelling voor het beheer van de visbestanden, uitgedrukt in termen van de visserijsterfte en/of de ten doel gestelde omvang van het bestand. Sommige plannen voorzien ook in een gedetailleerd en op maat gesneden stappenplan voor het verwezenlijken van de doelstelling. Sommige meerjarenplannen omvatten specifieke controlevoorschriften en beperkingen van de visserijinspanning als een bijkomend instrument voor de jaarlijks in totaal toegestane vangsten (TAC's).

Meerjarenplannen volgens het nieuwe GVB zijn gericht op visserij op het niveau van een maximale duurzame opbrengst en hebben een deadline voor de verwezenlijking van deze doelstelling. Ze bevatten ook maatregelen voor de uitvoering van de aanlandingsverplichting. Ook moeten ze waarborgen bevatten voor onder meer herzieningsbepalingen en corrigerende maatregelen, mochten deze nodig blijken. Meerjarenplannen kunnen ook technische maatregelen bevatten.

De Commissie heeft een meerjarenplan voor verscheidene soorten voorgesteld met het oog op het visserijbeheer in de Oostzee. Dit is het eerste nieuwe voorstel sinds de start van het nieuwe GVB.

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.

Council Regulation (EC) No 423/2004 of 26 February 2004

Council Regulation (EC) No 1342/2008 of 18 December 2008

Council Regulation (EU) No 1243/2012 of 19 December 2012 amending Regulation (EC) No 1342/2008 establishing a long-term plan for cod stocks and the fisheries exploiting those stocks

2. Recovery plan for Northern hake

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.

Council Regulation (EC) No 811/2004 of 21 April 2004

3. Recovery plan for Southern hake and Norway lobster

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.

Council Regulation (EC) No 2166/2005 of 20 December 2005

4. Multi-annual plan for sole, Bay of Biscay

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.

Council Regulation (EC) No 388/2006 of 23 February 2006

5. Multi-annual plan for sole, Western Channel

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.

Council Regulation (EC) No 509/2007 of 7 May 2007

6. Multi-annual plan for sole and plaice, North Sea

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.

Council Regulation (EC) No 676/2007 of 11 June 2007

7. Measures for the recovery of eel

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.

Council Regulation (EC) No 1100/2007 of 18 September 2007
