Multiannual plan for North Sea fisheries

23-05-2018

During the May II plenary, Parliament is expected to vote on a provisional agreement with the Council on a multiannual plan to manage the North Sea fisheries targeting demersal species (i.e. those living close to the sea bed). The plan, aiming to secure the long-term sustainability of the North Sea fisheries, bases its management measures on the best available scientific advice, and introduces new rules on how the Council sets the annual total allowable catches (TACs) for the stocks concerned.
