Agriculture Council, Luxembourg, 22 October
The Luxembourg Presidency will organise a debate on agriculture and mitigation of its impact on climate change. This will be done in the framework of the future Paris Climate Change Conference, which will take place from 30 November to 11 December 2015.
The Council will seek to reach political agreement on fishing opportunities for member states in the Baltic Sea for 2016. Ministers will decide on the maximum quantities of fish from specific stocks that can be caught in that sea (TACs – total allowable catches), as well as the fishing effort limits (number of days at sea) for Baltic cod stocks.
Ministers will also have an exchange of views on the annual consultations between the EU and Norway under their bilateral fisheries agreement. The consultations will take place in November and December 2015.
