Proposal to extend fisheries partnership agreement with Morocco for one year

13 Feb 2011

The European Commission adopted, on 11 February, a proposal for a draft negotiating mandate, addressed to the Council for a transitional, time-limited renewal of the Fisheries Partnership Agreement Protocol.

The draft mandate foresees more specifically an extension of the current Protocol for one year, whilst normally protocols of this type last for more than three to four years. The renewal is subject to a review of fishing opportunities in the light of scientific advice, as well as a regular reporting on the implementation of sectoral policy measures under the Protocol, including its regional impact. This one year period will be used to asses the data and information obtained from the Moroccan authorities about the regional impacts of the protocol and to define next steps.
