The Commission has today repealed the measures adopted against the Faroe Islands in August 2013 following their unsustainable fishery on Atlanto-Scandian herring. The measures imposed at the time will now be lifted as of 20th August 2014.
Study on approaches to management for data-poor stocks in mixed fisheries
The ten Member States that declared having exceeded their fishing quotas in 2013 will face reduced fishing quotas for those stocks in 2014. The European Commission announces these deductions on a yearly basis to immediately address the damage done to the stocks overfished in the previous year and ensure a sustainable use by Member States of common fishery resources. Compared to last year, the number of deductions made went down by 22%.

In the framework of the preparation of the future funding instrument, an interim evaluation of the EFF (2007-2013) has been undertaken by an external contractor at the request of the Commission. This was a limited exercise since it took place at an early stage in the implementation of the programme. Please note that the Member States are also undertaking at the moment an interim evaluation of their Operational Programmes, using guidelines developed by the Commission. These evaluation reports must be finalised in June 2011.
