South Pacific fisheries management measures

23-05-2018

As a contracting party to the South Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Organisation (SPRFMO), the European Union must transpose the binding conservation and management measures adopted by this organisation into EU law, so that they become applicable to EU fishing vessels. A provisional agreement of the Parliament and the Council on the first transposition of SPRFMO measures is scheduled for a plenary vote during the May II session.
