2 Agreed Record of Conclusions of Fisheries Consultations between the European Community and Norway for 2000

Brussels, 2 December 1999

1. A Community Delegation headed by Mr. Ole TOUGAARD and a Norwegian Delegation headed by Ms. Sigrun M. HOLST met in Brussels from 29 November to 2 December 1999 to consult on mutual fisheries relations for 2000. The meeting was a continuation of a previous meeting held in Bergen.
2. The Heads of Delegations agreed to recommend to their respective authorities the fishery arrangements for 2000 as outlined in Annexes I to VI and Tables 1 to 5.
3. It was noted that there is a recurring problem in relation to discrepancies between reported official catches or landings and catch statistics utilised by ICES. The discrepancies are assumed to be due to misreporting, inadequate accounting of discards, by-catches and other factors contributing to the total out-take of the stocks. In this context, the Parties noted that a working group on catch reporting and catch statistics has been set up and could be convened if necessary.
4. The Parties noted that according to the reports of the ACFM, a number of important North Sea demersal and pelagic fish stocks are close to or outside safe biological limits as defined by ICES. They agreed that sustained efforts are needed in order to improve the overall stock situation.
Following up on a Working Group, which met during 1999 and considered long-term harvest strategies for stocks in the North Sea, the Parties agreed to recommend to their respective authorities the long-term management arrangements for cod, haddock, saithe and plaice as set out in Annexes I to IV.
Furthermore, they agreed that the Working Group shall meet again in 2000 and report to the Parties well in advance of next year»s consultations. The Working Group shall:
- Evaluate and propose options for long-term harvest strategies for whiting, based on advice from ICES;
- Address issues relating to exploitation pattern and technical matters such as discards, selectivity of fishing gear, closed seasons and areas as well as any other appropriate measures; and
- Formulate a request to ICES with a view to evaluating its findings sufficiently in advance of next year»s annual consultations.
5. The Parties agreed that there is still a need to improve the knowledge of, inter alia, the stock composition, the magnitude and the age composition of herring catches in the North Sea and Skagerrak and Kattegat.
In light of the stock situation and in applying, mutatis mutandis, the provisions of paragraph 3 of the Arrangement referred to in Annex V, the Parties agreed to a continued implementation of the measures taken in 1999 to ensure the rebuilding of the stock.
In this context, the Parties concluded that the by-catches of herring in other fisheries will be limited to 36,000 tonnes in 2000; this quota will be allocated to the Community.
6.1 The Parties discussed issues relating to the management of mackerel. They referred to the fisheries consultations between the European Community, the Faroe Islands and Norway, which were concluded on 19 November 1999. They recalled that these consultations led to the adoption of a total catch limitation of 560,000 tonnes («reference TAC») for the mackerel fishery of the relevant Parties within waters under their national fisheries jurisdiction for 2000. Furthermore, they recalled that, at the said consultations, the implementation of an arrangement on the long-term management of the mackerel stock had been agreed. The Parties welcomed these results and emphasised their importance for an effective and responsible management of the mackerel stock.
The Parties also expressed satisfaction about the ongoing process within the North-East Atlantic Fisheries Commission (NEAFC), which has led to the establishment of management measures, which are compatible with the aforementioned catch limitation and which are suitable to bring, through co-operation, the unregulated mackerel fishery in international waters under appropriate control. They stressed the need to continue working together with a view to establishing NEAFC measures in the near future, which are acceptable to all Contracting Parties.
6.2 The Parties agreed to the arrangement set out in Tables 1 and 2. They noted that the catch levels set for 2000, in respect of western mackerel, constitute an ad hoc arrangement and do not relate to an assessment of the distribution of the stock in the zones of the two Parties, this being without prejudice to future arrangements.
6.3 Norway reiterated their view expressed in Annex III of the Agreed Record of Conclusions of Fisheries Consultations of 19 November 1999 between the European Community, the Faroe Islands and Norway on the management of mackerel in the North-East Atlantic for 2000.
The Community informed Norway about their intention of ensuring consistency between the quota, which they will set for mackerel in the Southern area (ICES Divisions VIIIc and IXa) for 2000 and the aforementioned reference TAC.
6.4 The Parties concurred that issues relating to the management of mackerel are complex and, therefore, merit in-depth scrutiny. They acknowledged the mutual sensitivity of these issues and recognised that, under these very circumstances, a constructive and unbiased dialogue must continue with a view to bringing about a further improved, comprehensive and rational management system for mackerel. This dialogue must continue at bilateral level and, as appropriate, with the inclusion of the Faroe Islands. The dialogue will have to address, inter alia, topics such as the relevant management areas, outstanding control and enforcement matters, measures to prevent misreporting and other appropriate technical regulations, the sharing of the mackerel stock, access and flexibility arrangements, economic factors and any other issues, which might be of relevance to the management of the mackerel stock.
6.5 The Parties referred to point 7 in Annex I of the Agreed Record of Conclusions of Fisheries Consultations of 19 November 1999 between the European Community, the Faroe Islands and Norway on the management of mackerel in the North-East Atlantic for 2000. The Parties agreed that intensified research on mackerel may inter alia include a continuation of tagging studies, acoustic surveys, genetic and morphometric characteristics, analysis of catch and survey data, as well as improved monitoring of the catches.
7. The Community expressed continuing concern about high catches of blue whiting by Norwegian vessels in high seas areas adjacent to Community fishing waters in recent years. They held the view that in the forthcoming NEAFC process, it would not be acceptable that recent catches be taken as the basis for future allocation. They also stressed the need for enhanced co-operation in control to deal with misreporting in an appropriate manner.
Norway pointed to the high abundance of blue whiting in the high seas adjacent to Community fishing waters over recent years. They emphasised the importance of efficient control and enforcement of fisheries to ensure compliance with the regulations in force. This would provide a basis for detecting infringements. Norway also informed of their intention to continue regulating the entire Norwegian blue whiting fishery. They pointed to the fact that future management of blue whiting in the NEAFC Regulatory Area is to be decided by NEAFC.
8. The Community informed Norway about their intention of ensuring consistency between the quota, which they will set for saithe in ICES Division VIa for 2000 and the TAC fixed for ICES Divisions IV and IIIa.
9. The Parties agreed to continue the exchange of officials as observers in relation to control and to continue the exchange of information, on a monthly basis and at more frequent intervals upon request, on landings by vessels of either Party and landings by third country vessels in the respective ports of the Parties.
10. Norway again informed the Community of the problem that Norwegian vessels experience while fishing in ICES Divisions Vb and VIa in relation to double reporting and accounting of catches. The Community agreed that this problem should be examined jointly by the Parties with a view to finding a practical technical solution. It was agreed to bring together technical experts from all sides involved to examine this problem in early 2000.
11. The Parties agreed that it was imperative to ensure that the accounting of catches against the relevant quotas is carried out in accordance with similar methods and criteria in order to provide for rational management and to forestall distortion of competition. In this context, weighing of landed catches, deduction of water content and conversion factors were identified as key points.
The Parties took note of the recommendations in the Report of September 1999 elaborated by the Joint Working Group of Control Experts on methods and procedures for weighing pelagic fish.
The Parties agreed, inter alia, that the adjustment factors for water, ice and packing material shall correspond to the real weight thereof. The relevant control authorities shall ensure that tests are carried out on a regular basis in order to ensure that the deduction weight of water, ice and packing material corresponds to the real weight.
In order to ascertain that the weight of the quantities caught and landed are accurately determined and recorded, the Parties agreed to ensure adequate inspection and surveillance in order to ensure that a landed live weight equivalent kilogram is equal to a kilogram of live fish (a kg must be a kg).
The Parties agreed to further the co-operation initiated in this field with a view to establishing common water deduction percentages corresponding to the different ways of landing pelagic fish. They also concurred that weighing practices shall neither distort competition nor entail unfair obstacles for commercial operations. In this perspective, the Parties agreed that the Working Group should continue its work and meet during the first half of 2000.
12. The Parties agreed that catches of sole taken under the «others» quota in the zone of either Party shall be limited to by-catches only. The Community indicated the intention to further specify appropriate conservation measures for the «others» quota.
13. Following the enlargement of the Community in 1986, Norway will, in order to facilitate the Community's adjustment to this enlargement, again consider an additional Community quota for 2000 of a total of 1,500 tonnes of redfish, this being without bearing on the fisheries balance.
14. The Community pointed out that the low allocation of redfish in Sub-areas I and II is without prejudice to requests which the Community may wish to make regarding this stock in future years.
15. The Parties agreed to consult in the event that the exhaustion of any quotas taken in a directed fishery or as a by-catch might prevent the full utilisation of established quotas.
16. Each Party shall, when appropriate and on request, inform the other Party of catches, by stock, made in its fishing zone by the vessels of the other Party; the information provided by Norway being broken down by flag.
17. The Parties noted that a satellite-based vessel monitoring system will apply to vessels operating in the waters of either Party from 1 January 2000. Based on the experience gathered in the framework of the Pilot Project agreed upon at the 1998 annual consultations, a number of technical issues remain to be resolved. The Parties, therefore, expect that a number of technical problems may occur in the initial operation of the system. The Parties, therefore, agreed that a meeting of technical experts be held in order to address these problems. In the event that problems should still remain, the Parties agreed to consult at the earliest possible date in January 2000. The Parties also agreed to exchange the texts of their respective fisheries legislation in regard to the implementation of the satellite-based vessel monitoring system no later than 31 December 1999.
18. The Parties discussed the possibilities of year-to-year management by way of a) the transfer of parts of quotas from one year to the next and b) permitting certain catches in excess of agreed quotas within defined limits. The Community indicated that they might revert to this matter at next year»s annual consultations.
19. The Community expressed concern about the increased frequency and the areas covered by temporary closures of fishing grounds in Norwegian waters. Norway explained that closures of fishing grounds on a real-time basis to protect young fish constitute a vital element in the Norwegian management system. Norway forwarded relevant information concerning areas closed temporarily.
20. In the context of the North Sea Conference, the Parties took note of the Statement of Conclusions following the Ministerial Meeting in Bergen on 13 March 1997 and agreed to report back, as appropriate, on the progress made.

Arrangement on the Management and Allocation of Herring of North Sea Origin

The Parties agree to implement a new management system for North Sea herring, which is consistent with a precautionary approach and designed to ensure a rational exploitation pattern and provide for stable and high yields. This system shall consist of the following :

  1. Every effort shall be made to maintain a level of Spawning Stock Biomass (SSB) greater than the Minimum Biological Acceptable level (MBAL) of 800.000 tonnes.

  2. A medium-term management strategy, by which annual quotas shall be set for the directed fishery and for by-catches in other fisheries as defined by ICES, reflecting a fishing mortality rate of 0.25 for 2 ringers and older and 0.12 for 0 ringers, shall be implemented.

  3. Should the SSB fall below a reference point of 1.3 million tonnes, the fishing mortality rates referred to under paragraph 2, will be adapted in the light of scientific estimates of the precise conditions then prevailing, to ensure rapid recovery of SSB to levels in excess of 1.3 million tonnes.
