Technical measures in fisheries: Council confirms deal with the EP

The EU is modernising its rules which govern how, where and when fishermen may fish, the so-called technical measures.

EU member states’ ambassadors today endorsed the agreement reached on 13 February between the presidency and European Parliament’s representatives on new rules on the conservation of fishery resources and the protection of marine ecosystems. These measures include specifications for fishing gears and mesh sizes, closed areas and seasons, and measures to minimize the impact of fishing on the marine ecosystem and environment.
