“Multiannual plans must be adopted under the ordinary legislative procedure”

“Multiannual plans are a fundamental and core aspect of the fisheries conservation tool provided for under EU law, and must be adopted under the ordinary legislative procedure via Article 43(2). […] The delay has forced the committee to raise this matter in frustration in plenary, and hopefully progress can be made.”

MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher, during the debate in the European Parliament, 13 February 2012, on a resolution on a multi-annual plan for Atlantic horse mackerel.

There is currently a deadlock among Member States over the long-term management plans and the plan for the western stock of Atlantic horse mackerel has been blocked in the Council since November 2010.
