OŽIVLJENJE

“We have shown today that the European Parliament is anything but toothless. We have used our power as a co-legislator, for the first time in fisheries policy, to put a stop to overfishing. Fish stocks should recover by 2020, enabling us to take 15 million tonnes more fish, and create 37,000 new jobs”, said fisheries reform rapporteur Ulrike Rodust (S&D, DE). Her report was adopted by 502 votes to 137, with 27 abstentions.

Discards – fish thrown back, usually because they are of an unwanted species or size – account for almost a quarter of total EU catches. Most of the discarded species die. To end this wasteful practice, MEPs voted to oblige fishing vessels to land all catches in accordance with a schedule of specific dates for different fisheries, starting from 2014.
Na primjer, iskrcani ulov ribe koja je premala, bit će ograničen na uporabu koja nije prehrana ljudi. Države članice moraju osigurati da se ribarska plovila pridržavaju zabrane odbacivanja.

From 2015, EU member states will be prevented from setting quotas that are too high to be sustainable. Fishermen will have to respect the “maximum sustainable yield” (MSY), i.e. catch no more than a given stock can reproduce in a given year. In today’s vote, MEPs sought to ensure that stocks recover by 2020 to above MSY levels and sustain them thereafter. Ultimately this should mean more fish, better catches and hence more jobs in the fishing industry.

Reforma će se oslanjati na višegodišnje planove upravljanja ribljim fondom kako bi se osiguralo da ribolov ostane održiv. Dugoročniji pristup trebao bi poboljšati tržišnu predvidljivost, što bi zauzvrat trebalo pomoći industriji da bolje investira i planira unaprijed. Višegodišnji planovi temeljit će se na pouzdanijim i točnijim znanstvenim podacima koje će države članice EU biti obvezne prikupiti i učiniti dostupnima.

Parlament će sada započeti pregovore s Vijećem i Komisijom o planovima reformi prije njihovog drugog čitanja. Irsko predsjedništvo Vijeća u više je navrata reklo da se nada postizanju sporazuma krajem lipnja.
A major reform of the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) which aims to cut fishing to sustainable stock levels, end dumping at sea, and base long-term planning on sound scientific data, was approved by Parliament on Wednesday. Overfishing is widely seen as the worst failure of the current CFP, dating from 2002. The new one is to take effect in 2014.

Podaci Europske komisije sugeriraju da je 80% mediteranskih i 47% atlantskih zaliha prekomjerno ulovljeno. Reforma izglasana na plenarnom zasedanju utvrđuje jasne i snažne mjere za rješavanje ovog problema.
