EU Fisheries Council: agreement on Baltic TACs 2011 but bluefin tuna discussions stall

At their meeting on 26 October EU Fisheries Ministers set Baltic TACs and quotas for 2011. But they failed to agree on a coordinated EU approach for the meeting of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) in November. A number of Member States disagreed with the Commission proposal to reduce the quota significantly. Discussions will continue between Member States in Council Working Groups.
