Fishing Opportunities for 2014 for EU fish stocks

COM (2013) 753 final – final Proposal for a COUNCIL REGULATION fixing for 2014 the fishing opportunities for certain fish stocks and groups of fish stocks, applicable in EU waters and, for EU vessels, in certain non-EU waters.

Fishing opportunities for each Member State are agreed on an annual basis in the EU Fisheries Council of Ministers on the basis of a proposal produced by the European Commission. A proposal which sets out 2014 fishing levels for certain stocks was circulated by the EU Commission on the 30th of October, 2013.
The Programme for Government 2007 – 2012 states that a Sea Fisheries Sustainability Impact Assessment, based on consultation with all major stakeholders, will be brought before the Dáil annually before EU fisheries negotiations commence.

Stakeholders are asked to comment on the Commission proposal for fishing opportunities for COM (2013) 753 final. The closing date for this call for submissions is 22nd November, 2013. All submissions received, subject to legal and editorial considerations, will be published on this website.
