Council of Ministers: ‘The quotas must be adjusted to scientific reports’

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, June 30, 2010, 02:10 (GMT + 9)

The head of the Ministry of Environment and Rural and Marine Affairs (MARM) of Spain, Elena Espinosa, reiterated that the fishing quotas for the Community fleet in 2011 should “be adjusted” to what the scientific reports indicate will assure responsible fishing.

Thus indicated the Spanish minister during the meeting of fisheries ministers of the European Union (EU), in Luxembourg.

The 27 ministers initiated the debate this Tuesday orientated to the negotiations of the total allowable catch (TAC) and quotas of the Community fleet for next year.

"As the European President and as Spain, we will defend what we have been defending for many years,” that is, that the TAC and quotas “must be adjusted” to the data collected by experts, Espinosa emphasised.

"Otherwise, we will not be able to have responsible fishing and sustainable fisheries," she added.

However, the minister admitted the difficulty in carrying out scientific investigations “in the sea, [as] there is no history, or experience.” This, she said, has led to “erroneous” information, Europa Press reports.

In any case, Espinosa maintained that these must not be criticised, “but quite the opposite.”

As far as the future of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), she pointed out: "We have to advance to get it to be sustainable, understanding it under the social, economic and environmental point of view."

"A future policy that does not question the activity nor the survival of the sector, and we are at the beginning. We will continue working and I believe that the new date will be in the month of November with the Belgian Presidency,” she concluded.

In Luxembourg, the European ministers will debate on the proposals for the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) collected during the consultation process that began last year and on the implementation of the European Fisheries Fund (EFF).

In addition, they will analyse negotiations with Iceland and the Faroe Islands regarding the management of the mackerel fishery.
