Multiannual plan for Bluefin tuna

11-01-2016

The European Union is a contracting party to the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), responsible for the management of these stocks and the fisheries exploiting them. Elements of international commitments made by the EU in ICCAT between 2012 and 2014, which are not already part of EU law, should be included therein. This also provides the occasion to group measures on a multiannual recovery plan for Bluefin tuna within a new regulation.
