COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) …/... of 1.10.2019 specifying details of implementation of the landing obligation for certain demersal fisheries in the North Sea for the period 2020-20

This proposal concerns the adoption of a Commission Delegated Act which will bring into force exemptions from the landing obligation for specific fisheries in the North Sea. They relate to exemptions for high survivability where is there a high probability that fish which are returned to sea will survive, or because the quantity taken as a bycatch is de minimus i.e. the quantity of bycatch that is discarded from a specific fishery is very low and have no impact on the condition of the stock.
