The European fisheries sector recognises the work of CITES concerning marine species to ensure that the international trade does not threaten their survival. However, it is important to respect the work and instruments already defined and implemented for this purpose by Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (RFMO), Governments and the sector itself. Species such as mako shark are sufficiently protected and regulated so as to guarantee its sustainable exploitation and legal trade, rendering unnecessary additional CITES measures. This was highlighted by the president of Europêche, Javier Garat, during his speech at the commemoration of the World Wildlife Day 2019, which took place today at the Palais des Nations, in Geneva.

The European fishing industry represented by Europêche opposes the inclusion of shortfin mako shark in Appendix II of CITES which would severely curtail the international trade of the species. Particularly, the sector rejects the EU initiative to co-sign a Mexican proposal for this purpose. Europêche believes that this initiative lacks both scientific and legal basis in light of the strong regulatory framework within the context of Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs) and other Regional Agreements, the biological characteristics of the species as well as the absence of illegal trade related to these stocks. Consequently, the species is sufficiently protected and regulated so as to ensure its sustainable exploitation and legal trade.

Après 9 jours d’intenses discussions sur les thonidés de l’Atlantique lors de la réunion plénière de la Commission Internationale pour la Conservation des Thonidés de l’Atlantique (CICTA), les résultats sont en demi-teintes pour les flottilles européennes. Europêche constate avec une grande déception que la CICTA n’a pas été capable d’aboutir à un consensus visant à réviser le plan de gestion des thonidés tropicaux, en particulier pour le thon obèse jugé dans un état de surexploitation par le comité scientifique de la CICTA.

After 9 days of intensive discussions on Atlantic tunas at the plenary meeting of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), the results are perceived as being poor and unsatisfactory by the European fishing fleet. Europêche notes with great disappointment that ICCAT has not been able to reach a consensus to revise the management plan for tropical tunas, in particular for bigeye tuna, which is considered to be overexploited by ICCAT’s scientific committee (SCRS).

Mr Aguiar Machado, Director General of the Directorate-General for Fisheries in the European Commission (DG MARE), met today with a delegation of fishing representatives from Europêche to discuss industry’s concerns relating to recent political and legislative developments at European and international level. Both Mr Machado and Europêche positively valued the good results in achieving sustainable fisheries, leading to healthier stocks and greater socio-economic benefits for the sector. However, the sector recalled the importance to adopt workable measures that can realistically be applied by the industry which has not been the case with the landing obligation. In addition, Europêche requested further efforts and diplomatic pressure for more fisheries agreements with 3rd countries which must be linked to trade and regional policies.

Sr. Karmenu Vella, Comisario de Medio Ambiente, Asuntos Marítimos y Pesca, se reunió ayer con una delegación de Europêche que representa a la flota pesquera de larga distancia en Europa. Tanto el Comisario Vella como Europêche valoraron positivamente las principales mejoras introducidas en la dimensión exterior de la Política Pesquera Común (PPC), que sitúa a las flotas pesqueras de aguas alejadas de la UE en la vanguardia de la pesca sostenible en el mundo. El sector recordó la importancia de adoptar más acuerdos de pesca con terceros países que deban vincularse a las políticas comerciales y regionales. Europêche solicitó mayor presión diplomática a Noruega sobre la cuestión de la pesca de cangrejos de nieve y otras poblaciones importantes de peces en las aguas de Barents y Svalbard.

M. Karmenu Vella, commissaire à l'environnement, aux affaires maritimes et à la pêche, s'est réuni hier avec une délégation d'Europêche représentant la flotte de pêche à longue distance en Europe. Commissaire Vella et Europêche ont valorisé positivement les principales améliorations apportées à la dimension extérieure de la politique commune de la pêche (PCP), qui positionne les flottes de pêche lointaine de l'UE à l'avant-garde de la pêche durable du monde. Le secteur a rappelé l'importance d'adopter plus d'accords de pêche avec les pays tiers qui doivent être liés au commerce et aux politiques régionales. Europêche a demandé une pression diplomatique supplémentaire sur la Norvège sur la question du crabe des neiges et d'autres stocks de poissons importants dans les eaux de la mer de Barents et de Svalbard.

Mr Karmenu Vella, Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, met yesterday with a Europêche delegation representing the long distance fishing fleet in Europe. Both Commissioner Vella and Europêche valued positively the major improvements made in the external dimension of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), which positions the EU distant-water fishing fleets at the forefront of the world's sustainable fisheries. The sector recalled the importance of adopting more fisheries agreements with 3rd countries which must be linked to trade and regional policies. Europêche requested further diplomatic pressure on Norway on the issue of snow crabbing and other important fish stocks in the Barents Sea and Svalbard waters.
