Question for written answer P-001271-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ole Christensen (S&D)

 Subject:  Fisheries control
 Answer in writing 

The Danish Government, together with the parties supporting it, has brought forward a plan to shore up fisheries control in the Skagerrak strait and the North Sea, where it has long been alleged that illegal fishing is taking place. The plan includes a call for cooperation to be stepped up between the Dutch and Danish control authorities.

Is the Commission aware of this plan?

Is it possible under the current rules to require Dutch fishing vessels to record their catches in the Skagerrak strait on a ‘tow-by-tow’ basis, as Danish, Swedish and Norwegian vessels do? And can Dutch vessels be required to report on the catch in the hold when they pass from the Skagerrak strait to the North Sea, as Danish vessels are required to do?

Does the Commission take the view that the Dutch and Danish authorities are fulfilling their fisheries control obligations in line with Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009?
