JAPAN
Monday, April 22, 2024

The 8th annual meeting of the North Pacific Fisheries Commission (NPFC) was held for four days from the 15th to the 18th at the Osaka Prefectural International Conference Center.

However, the TAC calculated from the latest resource levels is subject to fluctuations of up to 10% compared to the previous year, and in 2024 it is set at 225,000 tons, a 10% decrease from the previous year.

The conference was attended by nine member countries and regions, including Japan, Taiwan, China, and Russia. A press conference was held after the meeting.

At last year's annual meeting, the saury TAC stated that for the two years from 2023 to 2024, the amount within the treaty zone (high seas) should be kept at 150,000 tons, and within the exclusive economic zones (EEZ) of Japan and Russia, less than 100,000 tons. [....]

IN BRIEF - EBFA welcomes postponement of vote on total closure of 10% of EU fishing grounds

EUROPEAN UNION
Thursday, May 23, 2024

Until the next meeting of the EC Member States Coordination Group (MSCG) which will be in October 2024.
 
Statements by Iván López Van Deer Veen, president of the European Bottom Fishing Alliance (EBFA): “We are very happy with the decision taken today to postpone the vote to close 10% of the waters to fishing. We think it is great news that the Member States have asked for more time to better study the measures and wait for the information that needs to arrive and, above all, to study it patiently. We know that Spain has also agreed with this decision and therefore we are very satisfied and, furthermore, we believe that it is fair, since we are in an electoral period and it should be in any case after the formation of the new Parliament when decisions are made. decisions of this magnitude, and of course in important bodies and not in minor technical bodies. "It is a decision that would have a tremendous impact on the viability of European fishing and therefore should not be taken behind Parliament's back."
 
Many Member States have expressed that, due to the important implications for the fleet and food production, a decision cannot be taken lightly and therefore extensive consultations and discussions are necessary, especially with stakeholders in the fishing sector.

The urgent call for attention launched by the European Bottom Fisheries Alliance (EBFA) has had an effect. The EU countries had been summoned yesterday to comment on the proposal to ban all human activity - including fishing - 10% of all fishing grounds to protect the seabed. It was about moving forward in the application and setting of objectives within the framework of the marine strategies directive, but the fishing industry did not consider the current time, on the eve of the elections to the European Parliament, to be the best time to give a push to a process that dates back to 2008
