An updated recovery plan for bluefin tuna

20-06-2016

The European Commission has proposed to include some measures of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) in EU law, in so far as they are not yet included therein. In doing so, it also proposed to group all the measures on a recovery plan for bluefin tuna within a new regulation. Having taken a position on legislative amendments in January 2016, the EP is now due to vote on a text negotiated in trilogue with a view to reaching a first reading agreement.
