H-1053/06
ORAL QUESTION for Question Time at the part-session in December 2006 pursuant to Rule 109 of the Rules of Procedure by Laima Andrikienė to the Commission

 Subject: Influence of fishing quotas on the fishery industry in Lithuania
 Answer 

Fishing quotas for Lithuania are so low that fishing companies may have a profit from a maximum of 25 ships, all others have to be sawn up as not profitable. Last year in Lithuania 20 fishing ships were sawn up this year at least 11 ships. Therefore, Lithuania at the moment has only 34 fishing ships in its fleet and obviously the process of sawing up ships will continue next year. Even though the EU pays more than 1 million litas for each sawn up ship, as a consequence of the low fishing quotas the Lithuanian fleet navy will be destroyed. Does the Commission foresee a possibility to increase fishing quotas for Lithuania in order to save its fishery industry and to preserve a long tradition of fishery in the Baltic Sea?
