MEPs adopt proposals to improve Baltic fishing

MEPs today backed calls for the European Commission to bring forward new solutions to improve fishing in and around the Baltic Sea.

MEPs today backed calls for the European Commission to bring forward new solutions to improve fishing in and around the Baltic Sea.

Members supported a report by ECR MEP Marek Grobarczyk which demands Brusselstakes action to amend rules relating to fishing gear and discards in particular.

The proposals can only take effect afterreforms to the Common Fisheries Policy are finalised later this autumn.

ECR fisheries spokesman Mr Grobarczyk said: “The adoption of the new regulation of the Parliament and of the Council on the common fisheries policy (a so-called basic regulation) will have a direct impact on the use of technical measures in the Baltic Sea, the Belts and the Sound, and will result in the need to amend the scope of this report concerning the use of fishing gear. This is particularly important in the elimination of discards, ie. fish caught that as a result of the current arrangements are thrown overboard.

In his report Mr Grobarczyk says the Commission should propose a new, modified draft regulation on the use of technical measures in the Baltic Sea, the Belts and the Sound immediately following publication of the basic regulation text in the Official Journal of the European Union

In order to ensure this occurs, the rapporteur is introducing a provision concerning the need for the Commission to propose a new draft regulation on this subject, at the latest one year after publication of the basic regulation text in the Official Journal of the European Union

Mr Grobarczyk expresses his dissatisfaction associated with current technical measures in the Baltic Sea, for example with issues such as the discards of fish; specifications of fishing gear and the use on an unprecedented scale of commercial fishing dedicated exclusively to the production of fish meal resulting from the collapse of the species in the Baltic Sea

Mr Grobarczyk also recognizes the many controversies associated with current technical measures in the Baltic Sea, for example, use on an unprecedented scale commercial fishing (non-consumer) dedicated exclusively to the production of fish meal resulting in the collapse of a range of species in the Baltic Sea.
