EUROPEAN UNION
Friday, May 26, 2023

(BRUSSELS) - The EU approved Thursday the conclusion of a World Trade Organization protocol establishing a fisheries subsidies agreement, the first WTO agreement that focuses on environmental sustainability.

The WTO Agreement on Fisheries Subsidies is in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 14.6 (UN SDG) and includes:

  • a strong prohibition of subsidies contributing to illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing with unprecedented transparency provisions.
  • an absolute prohibition of subsidies for fishing on the unregulated high seas.
  • a provision on overfished stocks will bring sustainability rules for subsidies regarding the most vulnerable stocks in the first phase of the agreement.

Consensus was reached on the Agreement on Fisheries Subsidies at the 12th WTO Ministerial Conference in June 2022. The Agreement on Fisheries Subsidies will enter into force once two-thirds of WTO members have completed their domestic ratification processes.

Fisheries in the Northern Basin continue to increase their catch dynamics: production volume increased by almost 11.5% – to 165 thousand tons. The catch of capelin exceeded the level of last year by more than 2 times, crab by 10%, and flounder by 2.6 times.

Positive dynamics are also observed in the Azov-Black Sea basin: more than 10.7 thousand tons were produced, which is 5.5% higher than the 2023 level. In particular, the catch of anchovy increased by 8%, and sprat by 3.5 times.

In addition, the increase continues with the development of freshwater fish species in the internal objects of the East Siberian and Baikal basins.

Rosrybolovstvo regularly monitors the volume of production and supply of fish products to domestic and foreign markets in order to prioritize providing the country's population with fish products in the required volume.

Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: 90% of the value of trawl catches is concentrated in 50% of EU fishing grounds

EUROPEAN UNION
Tuesday, April 16, 2024

Fishing with mobile bottom contact gear in European waters is spatially limited to “basic fishing grounds” that concentrate 90% of the catch value and cover 50% of European marine areas (Baltic Sea, the Great North Sea, the Celtic Sea and the Bay of Biscay and the Iberian coastal areas), taking into account data from the period 2017-2022. However, the spatial location of these fishing grounds – starting from a grid cell definition of 0.05º latitude × 0.05º longitude, from 25 km2 to 36ºN to less than 13 km2 to 66. ºN–, varies from year to year, has concluded the ICES (International Council for the Exploration of the Sea) in a new advisory carried out on behalf of the European Commission.

IN BRIEF - Argentine Naval Prefecture detected two ships that were sailing from Malvinas without authorization

ARGENTINA
Monday, April 15, 2024

As part of the work carried out by the Argentine Naval Prefecture, as the national Maritime Authority, to monitor and control the country's maritime spaces, its coast guard GC-28 Prefecto Derbes, in collaboration with its Maritime Traffic and Coast Guard Vessel Services, achieved the detection of two ships that sailed from the Malvinas Islands without the corresponding Argentine authorization.

With this context, the Force warned that two vessels ("BEAGLE", Chilean flag, apparently towing the fishing vessel "AN FONG NO.136", Taiwan flag) were sailing at reduced speed within the country's Exclusive Economic Zone, through from the city of Comodoro Rivadavia, 245 nautical miles from the coast.

The aforementioned vessels have the particularity of having set sail from the Malvinas Islands simultaneously, with identical routes, which suggests that the tugboat could be providing assistance to the fishing vessel “AN FONG NO.136” (IMO 9777979).

It should be noted that, according to decree 256/10, consistent with Ordinance 01-10 of the Prefecture, any ship or naval device that intends to transit between ports located in the Argentine continental territory and ports located in the Malvinas Islands, Georgias del South and South Sandwich must request prior authorization issued by the competent national authority.
