Answer given by Mr Vella on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-000640/2017

Article 8 of Regulation (EU) No 1380/2013(1) provides for the possibility to establish fish stock recovery areas in which fishing activities may be restricted or prohibited in order to contribute to the conservation of living aquatic resources and marine ecosystems. According to the Commission’s information, there are currently no such areas established in EU waters.

To date, the Commission has not received any joint recommendations on the establishment of fish stock recovery areas from Member States. Furthermore, Member States have not informed the Commission of any actions to identify such areas, nor of any measures under consideration.
