IN BRIEF - Baltic countries demand EU action against Russia's fishing in the Baltic Sea

Thursday, July 11, 2024

Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden make a sharp appeal to the EU Council and the EU Commission to act against Russia's fishing activities in the Baltic Sea. The four countries believe that Russia's fishing undermines their joint efforts to rebuild the biological resources of the sea.

In a recent communication from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council, it is emphasized that the situation in the Baltic Sea is serious, with commercial fish stocks continuing to decline. Four out of ten fisheries have been banned for several years, including a five-year ban on Baltic cod fishing.

Russia fishes despite EU ban

Russia has on its own set fishing opportunities for cod, herring and sprat in the Baltic Sea. This is despite the ban in the EU, which worries the Baltic countries.

There is also concern that fish caught in the Baltic Sea by Russian vessels may find their way to the EU's internal market. The Baltic countries therefore call on the Commission to act quickly and use all available means to address Russia's behaviour.

They believe that access to the EU market must be conditional on sustainability requirements to prevent fish from Russia reaching the EU.

Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden demand that the Commission informs the Council before the October meeting of the measures planned to deal with this situation.
