Summary:

On 24 October 2018 the European Commission presented a proposal for a Regulation fixing the fishing opportunities for 2019 in the Black Sea. The Council of the European Union adopted the Regulation on 17 December.

Further information:

Regulation (EC) No 1380/2013 on the Common Fisheries Policy seeks to ensure that living aquatic resources are exploited under sustainable economic, environmental and social conditions. One important tool in this respect is the annual fixing of fishing opportunities.

The objective of the proposed Regulation is to fix, for the commercially most important fish stocks in the Black Sea, the fishing opportunities for Member States for 2019.

For sprat, the proposal is based on the scientific advice for an autonomous quota, in order to maintain the current level of fishing mortality. For turbot, the proposal transposes the TACs and quotas as established by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) in its recommendation on a multiannual management plan for turbot fisheries in the Black Sea.
