Parliament adopts changes desinged to improve cod management in the Baltic Sea

17 January 2013

MEPs adopted a report aimed at adapting Regulation (EC) No 1967/2006 on the management of cod stocks in the Baltic Sea to the new regulations laid down in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

MEPs adopted a report aimed at adapting Regulation (EC) No 1967/2006 on the management of cod stocks in the Baltic Sea to the new regulations laid down in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

Regulation (EC) No 1967/2006 is one of the first acts concerning the fishing industry, which has to be adapted to the new system of delegated and implementing acts. Therefore, special attention should be paid in finding a reliable solution protecting the legal rights of Parliament obtained with the Lisbon Treaty.

MEPs have decided to go beyond normal adaption and introduced a number of changes intended to make the cod management in the Baltic Sea more flexible and compatible with the latest available scientific research. Therefore, the report calls for, inter alia, the decrease in fishing discards for Baltic cod stocks.

“These and other changes are warranted in light of the Commission’s inability to come up with a new, long promised management plan for cod in the Baltic Sea.” – according to Marek Gróbarczyk MEP (ECR)

The adopted reports will ensure sustainable economic, environmental and social exploitation of Baltic cod.
