AGREEMENT amending the Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Government of the Democratic Republic of Madagascar on fishing off the coast of Madagascar, signed at Antananarivo on 28 January 1986

Article 1

Protocol 1 annexed to the Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Government of the Democratic Republic of Madagascar on fishing off the coast of Madagascar is hereby amended as follows:

1. Article 1 is replaced by the following:

'Article 1

Pursuant to Article 2 of the Agreement and for the period of application of this Protocol, which is limited to three years, tuna-fishing licences in Madagascar's fishing zone shall be issued for 49 ocean-going freezer tuna boats, although the number of such vessels fishing simultaneously may not exceed 33. The relevant Community authorities shall communicate at regular intervals the list of vessels fishing under these rules.'

2. Article 2 is replaced by the following:

'Article 2

The amount of the contribution referred to in Article 7 of the Agreement shall be fixed at a flat-rate of at least 1 530 000 ECU for the duration of the Protocol, payable in three equal annual instalments. This amount shall cover the fishing referred to in Article 1 up to a catch weight in Madagascar's fishing zone of 10 200 tonnes of tuna fish per year; if the amount of tuna caught by

Community vessels in Madagascar's fishing zone exceeds this quantity, the abovementioned amount shall be increased accordingly; however, irrespective of the amount actually caught, the ceiling for financial compensation shall be fixed at three million ECU for the duration of the Protocol, and hence at one million ECU per year.'

Article 2

In the Annex to the Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Government of the Democratic Republic of Madagascar on fishing off the coast of Madagascar, point 2 (b) is replaced by the following:

'(b) The sum of 555 ECU shall be paid each year by owners for each tuna-boat to the Treasury of Madagascar as an advance on the fees.'

Article 3

This Agreement, drawn up in duplicate in the Danish, German, Greek, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese and Malagasy languages, each of these texts being equally authentic, shall enter into force on the date of its signature.

It shall apply from 28 November 1986.
