Fisheries: agreement reached on sustainable management of bigeye tuna in the Indian Ocean

The EU welcomes the adoption of a measure to ensure the sustainable management for the bigeye tuna.

The measure introduces clear catch limits for all countries fishing in the area to ensure that the global quota will not be exceeded. Furthermore, special provisions were agreed to enable coastal states to be able to develop their own fisheries. The EU agreed to contribute the most to the catch reduction, reducing EU catches by 18.7% against the 2017-2021 declared catch average.

Unfortunately, no agreement could be reached on yellowfin tuna, nor on setting catch limits for skipkjack tuna. The EU regrets this and hopes that progress can be made on the management of these stocks as well as soon as possible.
