The position to be adopted on behalf of the Union at the annual meetings of regional fisheries management organisations (RFMOs) is currently established according to a two-tier approach. A Council Decision sets out the guiding principles and orientations of the Union’s position on a multiannual basis and it is subsequently adjusted for each annual meeting.
This Decision sets out the Union’s position in the SEAFO for the period 2019-2023.
The Convention on the Conservation and Management of Fishery Resources in the South East Atlantic Ocean (SEAFO Convention) aims to ensure the long-term conservation and sustainable use of the fishery resources in the Convention area. The Convention entered into force on 13 April 2003.
The SEAFO Commission is the body responsible for the management and conservation of the fishery resources of the Convention area. It adopts conservation and management measures to ensure the long-term conservation and sustainable use of the fish stocks covered by the Convention.
