Fisheries: Commission proposes fishing opportunities for 2013 in the Atlantic and North Sea
(24/10/2012) The European Commission has proposed fishing opportunities for 2013 for certain fish stocks in the Atlantic and the North Sea. Today's proposal sets levels of total allowable catch (TAC) and fishing effort for stocks managed exclusively by the EU. In line with scientific advice, the Commission proposes to increase or maintain the TACs for 16 stocks (including certain stocks of cod, Norway lobster, and sole), and reduce them for 47 stocks.
