With some discrepancies negotiations between EU and Mauritania continue

EUROPEAN UNION
Monday, June 02, 2014, 00:10 (GMT + 9)

The second round of fishing negotiations between the European Union (EU) and Mauritania finished without reaching an agreement, when there are two months ahead before the expiration of the current protocol, which allows 65 EU vessels to fish in the waters of the African country.

A source at the EU delegation in Nouakchott, however, pointed out that "things are moving ahead in a positive way."

One of the differences between the two sides lies in the possibility that the new agreement authorizes fishery resource landings in Puerto de la Luz, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, instead of doing so in Nouadhibou, the agency EFE reports.

According to the president of the Canarian Government, Paulino Rivero, the Mauritanian head of government, Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, had promised that the future agreement would allow this change, an aspect that is demanded by the Canarian fisheries sector.

Anyway, the news has never been made public in the African country and Mauritanian negotiating officials stated they were "not aware of" such a promise.
The current agreement, which sets that the EU must provide a financial contribution of EUR 113 million for its fleet to fish in Mauritanian waters, will be in force until 31 July.

This agreement also requires that 60 per cent of the crew of each fishing vessel must be Mauritanian and the Spanish fisheries sector considers this is disadvantageous for two reasons:

  • The fishing ban for European cephalopod vessels;
  • The requirement for landings in Mauritanian ports.

The Galician cephalopod fleet has not operated in this fishery for two years and reiterates its rejection of the new agreement because it continues contemplating the ban.

"The commissioner [of Fisheries, Maria Damanaki] must offer many explanations about the economic expense of this agreement," added sources consulted by the newspaper Faro de Vigo.

By contrast, the Mauritanian Government considers that the current protocol is "unbeatable".
