This is the European Commission’s first in-year amendment proposal to certain fishing opportunities for 2017 set out in Regulation (EU) No 2017/127 agreed at the December Fisheries Council 12 – 13 December 2016.

The timing of this agreement is of primary importance to the Danish fleet, which holds the majority of the quota, as the TAC needs to be adopted and enter into force in order for the fishing season to start on 1 April 2017.Making adjustments to the footnotes (1) and (2) under the Skates and Ray TAC in ICES Area VIId in respect of reporting requirements related to small-eyed rays.
