Update of EU rules on conservation and enforcement measures applicable to Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organisation

Deadline 14-03-2022

(Source European Commission)

The main purpose of the proposal is to implement into Union law the amendments to the conservation and enforcement measures adopted by the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organisation (NAFO) at its annual meeting in September 2021. The proposal also includes the NAFO editorial improvements and adapts the wording to the EU legal context. NAFO is the regional fisheries management organisation responsible for managing fishery resources in the Northwest Atlantic under its purview. NAFO’s conservation and management measures apply exclusively to the NAFO Regulatory Area, the high seas, defined as the area that lies beyond the area where coastal states exercise fisheries jurisdiction. The EU has been a Contracting Party to NAFO since 1979.
