Transposing ICCAT fisheries measures into EU law

27-09-2017

The European Commission has proposed to include a number of binding recommendations of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) in EU law, in so far as they are not yet included therein. After interinstitutional negotiations, the EP is now due to vote on a draft regulation on fisheries measures in the ICCAT area, with a view to reaching a first-reading agreement.
