Council extends regulation on technical measures

At the Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting 17 May, 2011, the Council approved a text extending the implementation period of the regulation for the conservation of fisheries resources through technical measures.

The approved text ensures legal certainty for specific measures aiming at the conservation of marine resources by extending the validity of regulation 1288/2009 for another 18 months, until 1 January 2013.

However, basic principles on technical measures will be considered by the new basic regulation for the ongoing reform of the common fisheries policy.
