Fishing Opportunities for 2017 for EU fish stocks

COM(2016)698 Proposal for a COUNCIL REGULATION fixing for 2017 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 the 2017 fishing levels for certain stocks was published by the EU Commission on the 27th October 2016. 

Each year, a Sea Fisheries Sustainability Impact Assessment, based on consultation with all major stakeholders, is brought before the Dáil before EU fisheries negotiations commence.

Stakeholders are asked to comment on the Commission proposal for fishing opportunities for 2017 - COM(2016)698 final. The closing date for this call for submissions is 25th November, 2016.

All submissions received, subject to legal and editorial considerations, will be published on this website.
