Commission decentralises and simplifies technical conservation measures in fisheries

Today the Commission, continuing to deliver on its commitment for Better Regulation, presented a proposal on technical conservation measures for fisheries in the European seas. These are rules on how, where and when fishermen may fish, also determining gear, catch composition and ways to deal with accidental catches. The proposal puts in place a more flexible system of governance, empowering regional actors, who know their local context best, to customize technical conservation measures in their sea basin. The proposal also condenses a number of distinct Regulations into one single text which should ease interpretation and facilitate compliance. EU Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella said: “With this proposal we ensure that our objectives for sustainable fisheries and the protection of marine habitats are reached throughout the EU.
