South Pacific fisheries management measures

10-01-2018

During the January plenary session, Parliament is expected to vote on a Commission proposal transposing a series of measures adopted by the South Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Organisation (SPRFMO) into EU law for the first time. The European Union is a contracting party to the SPRFMO, and the binding conservation and management measures adopted by this organisation must be transposed to become applicable to fishing vessels flying the flag of a Member State.
