Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is widely recognised as a significant environmental, economic and social problem. It represents a major threat to marine ecosystems, a disruption for the seafood market, and an unfair disadvantage for responsible fishermen. Combatting IUU fishing has become a key means for achieving sustainable management of global fisheries. While the root cause of IUU fishing is states' failure to discipline vessels operating under their flag, tackling this phenomenon ...

During the October I plenary session, Parliament is due to vote on a provisional agreement with the Council on tuna fisheries management measures adopted by the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC). As a contracting party to this organisation, the EU must transpose its measures into EU law so that they apply to all Union vessels.

During the September plenary session, Parliament is due to vote on a new transposition of fisheries management measures for the north-west Atlantic. As a contracting party to the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO), the European Union must transpose its measures so that they apply to vessels flying the flag of an EU Member State. This transposition covers the measures for 2022 adopted by NAFO at its annual meeting in 2021.

During the September plenary session, Parliament is due to vote on a provisional agreement with the Council to transpose the management measures for tuna fisheries adopted by the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC) since 2008. As a contracting party, the EU must transpose its decisions into EU law.

The functioning of the EU's Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) is currently being evaluated. The European Commission is assessing how to improve its implementation and will present a report by the end of 2022. This infographic sets out major legislation and policy developments that have shaped the current CFP framework.

This study is the first research paper in a series of three, commissioned for a PECH Committee Workshop. It provides an analysis of the legal aspects of the EU-UK TCA relating to fisheries. The analysis covers, inter alia, the scope of the fisheries provisions, conservation and management, fishing opportunities, arrangements on access to waters, arrangements on governance (including provisions on remedial measures, dispute settlement, institutional arrangements, termination, review and relationship ...

This study is the second research paper in a series of three, prepared for a PECH Committee Workshop. It provides a global overview of the latest developments, as well as potential benefits and risks of Electronic Monitoring (EM). Worldwide experiences with EM are discussed in light of the European context. During the period 2008 to 2019, altogether 26 EM trials were conducted within the EU. Despite promising results, none of the trials evolved into a fully integrated EM programme. Still, lessons ...

This study is the third research paper in a series of three, prepared for a PECH Committee Workshop. It examines and presents possibilities of electronic technologies (ET) that can be used to report, document and monitor fishery activities of the small-scale vessel fleet. The national fishing fleets in the EU are large where most of the vessels are less than 12 metres in length. The information on this fleet segment’s fishing activities is limited and insufficient for documentation of the fleet’s ...

This study assesses the implementation of the EU fisheries control system under the current Regulation (EC) No 1244/2009. It focuses on the infringement procedures, sanctions and the application of the point system for serious infringements by Member States from 2014 to 2019. The research shows results based on interviews and survey replies by 17 out of 22 coastal Member States. And it presents case studies for the following seven countries: Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania and ...

Technical measures in fisheries govern the different fishing practices that can be used to catch fish, as well as the areas and seasons for fishing. Aimed at limiting unwanted catches and the impact of fishing on marine ecosystems, EU technical measures have developed over time into a notoriously complicated regulatory structure, which came to be seen as a plethora of ineffective rules under rigid governance. The European Parliament and Council have adopted a new legislative framework that changes ...
