Poland's annual salmon quota reduced
(29/11/2013) A Commission Regulation providing for a reduction of the annual salmon quota allocated to Poland was issued to recover salmon quota overfished by Polish fishermen in 2012.
The overfishing is linked to a problem of misreporting salmon catches as sea trout – a closely related species for which there is no EU annual quota in the Baltic Sea. The different EU countries concerned, including Poland, agreed in recent years to increase salmon fisheries control.
