Seminar in Vigo to strengthen control of bluefin tuna fishery
The European Fisheries Control Agency, on behalf of the European Union, is organising a seminar on 28-29 June with other Contracting Parties to the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) to strengthen the monitoring and control of bluefin tuna fisheries.
Most Mediterranean members have confirmed their attendance at this seminar which aims at increasing coordination and cooperation on the control of the bluefin tuna fishery. Recent developments in this area will be presented and participants will share their experiences of pilot projects such as sampling plans, video records as a tool to control transfers, trap activities, other gear and traceability. Furthermore, an assessment of the joint control activities undertaken during the most recent fishing campaigns will be presented.
