The Ministry of Environment and Rural and Marine Affairs (MARM) put forth a temporary ban for bottom trawler fishing in the coast of the province of Tarragona.

The measure, set forth through Ministerial Order 1617/2010, is based on the recommendations of scientists, who advise the application of protection measures for demersal species populations, among them, the creation of bans off the coast of Catalonia.

The government aims to assure a balanced and responsible exploitation of fisheries resources, favouring their sustainable development by means of measures of protection, conservation and regeneration for the resources and ecosystems, and adapting the fishing effort of the fleet to the state of the same.

According to the new norm, bottom trawling is prohibited on Spanish ships in the following external waters and dates:

1-  The area between the 176º bearing drawn from the thermal centre of Cubelles in position 41º 12.12’ North latitude and 001º 39.25’ east longitude and the 123º bearing drawn from the South gullet of the Ebro river in position 40º 40.90’ North latitude and 001º 39.25’ east longitude, except the area delimited in the following area. This ban prevails from 15 June to 30 June, both inclusively;

2-  Maritime area included between the points defined by the following coordinates:

  • 40º 52.00’ north, 001º 26.00’ east;
  • 40º 58.00’ north, 001º 40.00’ east;
  • 40º 34.00’ north, 001º 42.00’ east;
  • 40º 30.00’ north, 001º 30.00’ east;

Here fishing is prohibited from the entry in force of the norm to 27 July 2010, both inclusively.

3-  Area between the 123º bearing drawn from the South gullet of the Ebro river, to the 123º bearing drawn from the mouth of the Senia river in position 40º 31.50’ North latitude and 000º 31.00’ east longitude. This ban will prevail from 1 July to 31 August 2010, both inclusively;

The MARM said that it fulfilled the process of communication to the European Commission and petitioned a mandatory report from the Spanish Oceanography Institute (IEO), an agency that advises on establishing measures of protection for demersal species populations.
