The 23rd annual meeting of the Commission for the Conservation of Southern Bluefin Tuna (CCSBT) met from 10 to 13 October 2016 in Kachsiung, Chinese Taipeh. The EU is pleased by the progress made and welcomes science-based decisions on the permitted catch levels for southern bluefin tuna for 2017 and for 2018-2020, as well as the strengthening of the fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and the ban on large-scale driftnets. The EU regrets that seabird mitigation measures were not adopted due to a lack of sufficient support.

Fisheries ministers will meet during the AGRIFISH Council in Luxembourg on 10-11 October to discuss the Baltic fishing opportunities for 2017. Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella, will present the Commission's proposal tabled on 29 August, and urge ministers to set fishing opportunities at sustainable levels. Decisive action is needed, in particular for western cod, which is experiencing a perilous decline. The Commission's proposals are based on the scientific advice received and are in line with the EU's Common Fisheries Policy and the recently adopted Baltic multiannual fisheries management plan.
