NORTHEAST ATLANTIC FISHERIES COMMISSION
AGREES TO CONTINUED AND SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF
MAJOR FISHERIES AND MARINE ECOSYSTEMS
UNDER ITS RESPONSIBILITY
The 30th Annual Meeting of the North‐East Atlantic Fisheries Commission
(NEAFC) was held in London from 7 to 11 November 2011 under the
chairmanship of the Acting President, Mr Andrew Thomson (European Union).
Recognising the depleted state of the stocks of spurdog, basking shark and
porbeagle, NEAFC agreed to ban all directed fisheries for these species as well as
extending measures to include a ban on directed fisheries on a number of deepsea
shark species. Unable to agree on suitable measures for orange roughy, it
was confirmed that the general measures applicable to deep‐sea species would
apply during 2012.
