Commission consults Ministers on fishing opportunities for 2018


On 17th July, Fisheries Ministers of the EU will discuss in Council the Commission's Communication setting out principles for healthy and profitable fishing quotas for 2018.

For the first time, the consultative Communication looks at the progress made in the implementation of the reformed Common Fisheries Policy four years on. The Policy statementhighlights noteworthy improvement in the overall economic performance of the EU Fleet, which registered record net profits of EUR 777 million in 2014, a 50% increase from 2013.

The economic forecast for 2016 and 2017 remains upbeat. In terms of the state of fishing stocks, today in the Atlantic, North and Baltic Seas 61% of assessed stocks are exploited sustainably and fish stocks are being rebuilt.

A notable example is the recovery of the Cod in the North Sea, which has almost tripled due to sustainable management between 2006 and 2016. By contrast, overfishing in the Mediterranean and the Black Seas remains an issue. As regards the obligation introduced with the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy, to land all fish and move away from the wasteful practice of discards, all fisheries in the Baltic and Black Seas, as well as all fisheries for pelagic and other industrial species in all EU waters are now under the landing obligation.

The Communication is open for consultation to stakeholders and citizens. A press release and Q&A are available online.
