Western Waters fisheries: Council gives go-ahead to multiannual management plan

The EU is soon implementing new, longer term rules to manage fishing activities in the Western Waters, which comprise both the North and South Western Waters, and the waters around Madeira and the Canary Islands.

The Council today adopted a regulation establishing a multiannual plan for stocks fished in the Western Waters and adjacent waters, and for fisheries exploiting those stocks.

The multi-annual management plans are crucial to the implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy. Today, after the Baltic and North Sea, Western Waters follow suit with the objective of ensuring the sustainability of our marine resources and fisheries sector.

Petre Daea, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development of Romania and President of the Council
