Revision of the Fisheries Control System

25-10-2018

The Commission is proposing a revision of the Fisheries Control System to enhance its effectiveness and efficiency by adapting it to the prevailing legal situation and to current technological possibilities in the field of fisheries control. This initial appraisal of the Commission’s impact assessment accompanying the proposal views the impact assessment as a well-balanced, comprehensive and transparent analysis based on sound data and research which makes a persuasive case for the proposal.

Alternative Solutions for Driftnet Fisheries

16-02-2015

The principal environmental impact of driftnets is related to the bycatch of non-target species. In general driftnets have a high degree of size selectivity and can efficiently be regulated by mesh size. Few alternative fishing methods are available to catch the species targeted by driftnets, and the impact for some of these gears is controversial. Solutions are proposed to mitigate the environmental impact of driftnet fisheries by alternative fishing gears and improvement of selectivity.

Prohibition on driftnet fisheries: Initial Appraisal of a European Commission Impact Assessment

29-01-2015

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying the Proposal laying down a prohibition on driftnet fisheries. In Council Regulation (EC) No 809/2007 a driftnet is defined as a gillnet ‘held on the sea surface or at a certain distance below it by floating devices, drifting with the current, either independently or with the boat to which it may be attached. The overall impression is of an impact assessment ...

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying the Proposal laying down a prohibition on driftnet fisheries. In Council Regulation (EC) No 809/2007 a driftnet is defined as a gillnet ‘held on the sea surface or at a certain distance below it by floating devices, drifting with the current, either independently or with the boat to which it may be attached. The overall impression is of an impact assessment prepared in some haste. Even if elements of the draft version of at least one of the two external studies commissioned were apparently used in its preparation, the timing of their completion seems to have been far from ideal. The IA is clearly hampered by the acknowledged lack of adequate data regarding the core problems. Although a genuine attempt has evidently been made to describe the current situation, and in particular to establish how many driftnet fisheries and vessels are concerned, the presentation of the various figures coming from different sources is confusing and does not provide a clear overview. Finally, other issues identified, such as, for example, the monitoring and control difficulties, some of which would presumably persist in case of a total ban, might have deserved further consideration in the context of the preferred option.

The Conflict between Static Gear and Mobile Gear in Inshore Fisheries

15-07-2014

The majority of fishing vessels and fishers in Europe are engaged in inshore fisheries. These fisheries utilise a diverse range of fishing techniques that have been selected to suite the species and conditions in which they operate. This analysis describes the causes and consequences of conflict among different sectors, how these fishing gears operate, and the different ways in which they impact upon the marine environment. Solutions are proposed to reduce conflict through investment and innovative ...

Fisheries: why technical measures matter

02-06-2014

This paper gives an introduction to technical measures in relation to fishing practices and provides an overview of the current EU legislation and objectives on this subject. It also gives some illustration of what is under consideration in order both to align these rules with the aim of the newly reformed Common Fisheries Policy to end the discards of unwanted fish back at sea, and in relation to a possible future proposal for a broad review of the EU legislative framework on fisheries technical ...

Characteristics of Multispecific Fisheries in the European Union

14-03-2014

The main objectives of this study are: - Description of four case studies considered as the most representative multispecies and mixed fisheries in EU waters. - Analysis of recent improvements on selectivity and identification of species with high survival rate. - Discuss the application of the MSY approach in multispecies fisheries and ecosystem approach. Reviewing European stock status in relation to MSY targets. - A roadmap for a feasible landing obligation and MSY approach in EU mixed fisheries ...

Discarding fish under the Common Fisheries Policy: Towards an end to mandated waste

13-05-2013

Fishermen not only catch what they are interested in or authorised to fish. The unwanted part of their catches is discarded back at sea, often dead. This is seen by many as an unacceptable waste of resources.

Fiske efter sandräka

16-05-2011

Syftet med studien är att ge ledamöterna av Europaparlamentets fiskeriutskott en tydlig beskrivning av fisket efter sandräka (Crangon crangon) och av marknaderna i Nederländerna, Tyskland och Danmark. Undersökningen är utformad som ett informationsdokument. Där behandlas produktionsfrågor (produktionens ekonomiska och sociala betydelse, flottornas lönsamhet, miljöpåverkan) samt marknadsföringsfrågor (branschens organisation, den roll som spelas av viktiga grossister och beredningsföretag, priser ...

Seals and fish stocks in Irish waters

01-10-2010

Conflict exists between seals and fisheries, with seals affecting fisheries through damage to catches and gear and competition for resources. Fisheries can affect seals through accidental by-catch, and overfishing can reduce prey availability. This briefing note provides a comprehensive review of the situation in Irish waters, using existing data augmented with information from key industry stakeholders to provide a realistic and representative account of the current situation. Recommendations are ...
