EC proposes Black Sea quota cuts

29 Nov 2011

The European Commission has proposed to cut quotas for turbot and sprat in the Black Sea for 2012.

The only two Member states concerned by the proposals are Bulgaria and Romania.

The Commission proposes to cut the EU quota for turbot by 15%, to 74t, and for sprat, the proposal is to keep the EU quota unchanged, at 11,475t.

The EU quota for turbot is divided evenly between Bulgaria and Romania. For sprat, Bulgaria and Romania's national quotas are set at 70 and 30% of the total EU quota, respectively.

The Commission says that the proposal takes into consideration the advice by the Commission's Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF) and will be discussed by EU member states ministers at the December Fisheries Council.
