Γνωμοδότηση της ΕΟΚΕ: Fisheries - NAFO

Key points

The purpose of the proposal is to implement into Union law the conservation and enforcement measures adopted by the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organisation (NAFO).


  • reiterates the views it set out in opinions 2018/05155, 2020/02842 and 2022/01131;
  • considers that the proposal does not establish an efficient mechanism for transposing the measures adopted by NAFO, and does not resolve the issue of having to update these measures each year;
  • is in favour of a more efficient, simpler mechanism, and therefore proposes drafting a regulation that contains a single article stipulating that the European Union must, without fail, apply NAFO measures to its fleet.
