PROCEDURE
24/ 25. V. B4
AND QUOTAS FOR 19Bs AND SUBS
YEARS
After an exchange of views, the President drew the following
conclusions:
rrThe
Council stressed the importance of fixing TACs and quotas
for the following year during the previous December at the latest.
rt considered that this objective, even if it red to the fixing of
provisional TACs and quotas, was essential- to ensure the proper
management of all fishing activities
and, at the same time, the
satisfactory application of the policy for the conservation and
management of fish stocks.
The Council welcomed the Commissionrs intention of enabling it
to act within the desired time Iimit.
Even closer collaboration between the Community, the scientific
bodies under its aegis and the rnternational councir for the
Exploration of the Seas woul.d further facilitate the achlevement of
this objective. The Member states which are party to the r.c.E.s.
for their
own
part undertake to facilitate its imprementation.
Such collaboration should in particular:
f ac 1I i tate ttre p lanning of the submission of the scientific
opinions
according to the time-scate of the Community
management policy;
lead Lo a shortening of the time taken by the ICES procedures
themselves;
possible a better use of the ICES opinions by the Scientific
and Technical- Committee on Fisheries.
make
The possibility
of fixing multiannual TACs (and quotas) for
certain, as yet unspecified, stocks shoufd be considered, taking
into
account the biological data available.
