Title: Harvest control rules in the Common Fisheries Policy


1
Harvest control rules in the Common Fisheries
Policy
2
THE COMMON FISHERIES POLICY
Objectives The CFP shall ensure exploitation of
living aquatic resources that provides
sustainable economic, environmental and social
conditions

3
Objectives
  • Precautionary approach
  • Principles
  • clear definition of responsibility
  • based on sound scientific advice
  • broad involvement of stakeholders
  • consistence with other Community policies

4
The CFP covers
  • Conservation
  • Fishing fleet
  • Access to water
  • Control
  • International fisheries
  • Aquaculture
  • Social dimension
  • Economic management
  • Good governance

5
Conservation
  • Access to waters and resources and the
    sustainable pursuit of fishing activities

6
Conservation
  • Long-term approach
  • recovery plans
  • management plans
  • Targets for sustainable exploitation

7
Conservation
  • Measures
  • Limiting catches
  • Fixing numbers of vessels
  • Limiting fishing effort
  • Technical measures

8
Harvest control rules are until now only
implemented in Community law as part of recovery
plans.
9
Existing recovery plans
  • Kattegat cod,
  • Skagerrak, North Sea and the eastern Channel
    cod,
  • Cod west of Scotland,
  • Cod in the Irish Sea, and
  • Northern hake
  • North Sea herring

10
Proposed or planned recovery plans
  • Baltic cod
  • Hake in VIIIc and IXa
  • Nephrops in VIIIc and IXa
  • Bay of Biscay sole
  • Western Channel sole
  • North Sea plaice
  • North Sea haddock, whiting and saithe
  • Celtic Sea cod
  • Celtic Sea plaice
  • Celtic Sea whiting

11
Recovery plans
  • The objective is to ensure recovery of the stocks
    within 5 to 10 years

12
Recovery plans
  • Recovery targets (Bpa)
  • HCR
  • Procedures for setting TACs and fishing effort
  • Technical measures
  • Monitoring, inspection and surveillance

13
HCR based on annual increase in SSBCod
F below Fpa SSB above Bpa Constraints on annual
variation in TAC
Bpa
F below Fpa XX increase in SSB Constraints on
annual variation in TAC
SSB
Blim
F below Fpa Increase in SSB to above Blim in one
year and minimum increase in SSB of XX
14
HCR based on constant F Northern hake

Constant F Constraints on annual variation in
TAC No decrease in SSB
SSB
Blim
Constant F if SSB increase to above Blim If
constant F does not result in SSB being above
Blim no clear rules.

16
Key issues raised by Member States
  • Recovery period
  • Types of measures (input and/or output control)
  • Limitations on effort and/or catches in the first
    year
  • Allocation of effort reduction between Member
    States
  • Reference points
  • Control measures

17
Implementation of HCR
  • Scientific input
  • Control and enforcement
  • HCR relates to stocks not fisheries

18
Conclusions
  • HCRs should be established as integrated part of
    management plans
  • Management plans should be developed in dialogue
    with all stakeholders
