Cod and haddock catches to increase under EU fishing quotas
Consumers can expect to see more plaice, cod, haddock and sole on sale in shops and restaurants following recoveries in fish populations around the UK coast and more relaxed catch fish limits as a result of overnight negotiations authentic canada goose jacket sale between EU ministers.
From next year, fishermen will be allowed to catch twice as many plaice canada goose coat – victoria in the Channel, 15% more cod and 47% best place buy canada goose jacket toronto more haddock in the North Sea;15% more sole in the western Channel and 20% more Celtic Sea hake.
Restrictions on plaice were relaxed after the fish showed a dramatic recovery of around 300% in a decade, attributed to the success of previous quotas. But conservationists warned that lifting limits now could impact negatively on many fragile fish populations still recovering from years of overfishing.
Some quotas continue to allow severe overfishing, threatening the sustainability of the stock and the industry that relies can you buy canada goose jacket online on it, said Liane Veitch, a scientist for the green legal group ClientEarth.
Reaction from the thinktank the Pew Trusts was more guarded, pending disclosure of the scientific evidence on which the decisions were based.
The good news is that ministers adopted many fishing limits in line with the scientific advice from the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), said Andrew Clayton, buy canada goose jacket london the trusts fisheries project director. For other stocks, however, ministers exceeded the ICES advice. This makes implementing the CFP [common fisheries policy] more difficult, so it is important that ministers make public the justification for these decisions.

The news was welcomed by the fishing industry. Bertie Armstrong, chief executive of the Scottish Fishermens Federation, said: These quota rises for some of our most important stocks is good news for the industry and underlines the sustainable fishing practices of the Scottish fleet.
Haddock is particularly important for the Scottish industry and this quota increase, along with those for North Sea cod and a number of other species, provides a welcome boost for our fishermen.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs credited the substantial quota increases to tough UK-driven decisions which it said would improve fish stocks and industry profitability.
By fighting for the fishing industry, and making a clear case for the need for more sustainable fishing, we have got a good deal and shown we can get what we need in Europe, said George Eustice, the fisheries minister. Thats just what were also doing in this European renegotiation [over EU membership], fighting hard for the UK.
An EU proposal for a total six-month ban on the fishing buying cheap canada goose outlet jacket online of severely depleted sea bass populations was whittled down in negotiations to a two-month closure, with exemptions for inshore fisheries during the other four months.
