Legislative initiative - tabled by the European Commission on 28 October 2022 - concerning the catch limits for fish stocks in waters of the European Union (EU) in the Atlantic Ocean, Kattegat and Skagerrak for 2023, including for deep-sea stock for 2023 and 2024.
All fishing opportunities regulations must limit the harvesting of fish stocks to levels that are consistent with the overall objectives of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). Regulation (EU) No 1380/2013 - the Basic Regulation for the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) - sets out objectives for annual and biennial proposals for catch and fishing effort limits to ensure that EU fisheries are ecologically, economically and socially sustainable.
This draft law covers autonomous EU stocks; shared stocks that are to be jointly managed with the United Kingdom (UK) in the North Sea and the North-Western Waters, that are to be jointly managed with Norway and the UK in the North Sea and the Skagerrak, or that are subject to North-East Atlantic Fisheries Commission (NEAFC) coastal States consultations. It also includes fishing opportunities under agreements concluded in the framework of the regional fisheries management organisations (RFMOs) and certain fishing opportunities in waters of non-EU countries.
The proposal was tabled by the European Commission on 28 October 2022.
