Fisheries: Commission decides on deductions of fishing quotas for 2012

01/08/2012

The European Commission announced today deductions from 2012 fishing quotas of those Member States that had exceeded their quotas in 2011. Through deductions the Commission can immediately address the damage done to the stocks overfished in the previous year and ensure a sustainable use by all Member States of a common fishing resource.
