COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 448/2005

of 15 March 2005

amending Council Regulation (EEC) No 3880/91 on the submission of nominal catch statistics by Member States fishing in the north-east Atlantic

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3880/91 of 17 December 1991 on the submission of nominal catch statistics by Member States fishing in the north-east Atlantic (1), and in particular Article 2(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

At its annual meeting in November 2002, the North East Atlantic Fisheries Commission (NEAFC) recommended that, with a view to improving the management of fish stocks in the international waters under its jurisdiction, the international agencies responsible for the collection and compilation of catch statistics should be requested to implement an appropriate subdivision of the statistical areas.

(2)

The Deepwater Fisheries Working Group of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) has recommended the subdivision of the statistical divisions of the north-east Atlantic so as to better identify deepwater fisheries.

(3)

The decision of the International Baltic Sea Fisheries Commission to manage the stocks of the Baltic Sea division 28 as two separate units demands the availability of statistics for these units.

(4)

The ICES, acting on the advice of its Advisory Committee for Fisheries Management, has accordingly requested the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) to modify its Statlant 27A questionnaire by asking national authorities to submit statistics for catches in certain waters of the north-east Atlantic with an increased level of detail.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee for Agricultural Statistics set up by Council Decision 72/279/EEC (2),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annexes II and III to Regulation (EEC) No 3880/91 are replaced by Annexes I and II to this Regulation respectively.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 15 March 2005.
