Proposal for a COUNCIL REGULATION fixing for 2013 and 2014 the fishing opportunities for EU vessels for certain deep-sea fish stocks


This proposal for fixing fishing opportunities is based on the further review undertaken by the Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF) in July 2012, following the work of ICES. This provides the groundwork for fixing fishing opportunities for deep sea stocks in accordance with the principle embodied in Article 2(2)(b) of Council Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002, whereby decision-making under the Common fisheries Policy must be based on sound scientific advice which delivers timely results.
