1. INTRODUCTION

Article 14 of Council Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002[1] and Article 12 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1438/2003[2] require Member States to submit to the Commission, before 1 May each year, a report on their efforts during the previous year to achieve a sustainable balance between fleet capacity and available fishing opportunities. On the basis of these reports and the data in the Community Fishing Fleet Register[3] the Commission produced for the year 2004 a summary which was presented to the ‘Scientific Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries’ (STECF) and the ‘Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture’. In this report the Commission now presents that summary, accompanied by the opinions of the above-mentioned committees, to the Council and the European Parliament.

This report is divided into two parts:

- the first part describes the rules that must be followed by Member States in managing their fleets and summarises the information submitted according to Article 13 of Commission Regulation (EC) No1438/2003 on implementing rules for fleet policy;

- the second part shows the development of Member States’ fleet capacities in 2004 in the form of numeric tables containing the relevant information on the management of entries and exits of vessels for each national fleet.

During 2004, Czech Republic, Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia (hereinafter new Member States) joined the European Union. 7 of them, namely Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland and Slovenia have a sea fishing fleet, which has been registered in the Community Fleet Register. Therefore they are also subject to submit an annual report on their fleet as from 1st May 2004, the date of accession, up to 31st December 2004.

2. FLEET MANAGEMENT IN THE REFORMED COMMON FISHERIES POLICY

FOLLOWING THE REFORM OF THE Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) adopted in December 2002, the fishing fleets are managed by the general rule that new capacity, expressed in terms of tonnage and power, introduced into the fleet cannot be higher than capacity withdrawn from it.

a) Entry/Exit regime

From 1 January 2003 Member States have had to respect a strict entry-exit regime applying to the capacity of their fleets, measured in terms of both tonnage and power. Any entry of capacity into the fleet of a Member State has to be compensated by the previous exit of at least the same amount of capacity (ratio 1:1, “at any time”), unless the entry corresponds to works to improve safety, hygiene or living and working conditions on board (Article 11(5) of Council Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002). For entries of new vessels between 100 and 400 GT built with public aid (the administrative decisions granting aid were possible only until 31 December 2004) the Member State has to withdraw 35% more capacity than it introduces (ratio 1:1.35).

Another important rule is that capacity leaving the fleet with public aid cannot be replaced. Such capacity is subtracted directly from the fleet and also from the reference level established in accordance with Article 12 of Council Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002, and it therefore counts against the entry/exit regime in the ratio 0:1. Capacity reductions supported with public aid are therefore definitive.

All of this means that, as a general rule, the capacity of the national fleets cannot increase with respect to its levels on:

- 1 January 2003 for EU-15 Member States in accordance with Article 6 and 7 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1438/2003;

- 1 May 2004 for new Member States in accordance with Article 1(2) and 1(3) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 916/2004.

In practice this is likely to be the case. However, the implementing rules for the fleet policy allow for the introduction of vessels outside the framework of the entry/exit regime in the case where administrative decisions have been made by the national authorities:

- between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2002 for those vessels to enter the fleet after 1 January 2003 in EU-15 Member States and,

- between 1 May 2001 and 30 April 2004 for vessels which enter the fleet after 1 May 2004 in new Member States.

These entries have to take place at the most 3 years after the date of the administrative decision (i.e. for EU-15 Member States at the latest by the end of 2005 and for new Member States until 30 April 2007) and must comply with the rules that existed at that time, in particular Article 9 of the Council Regulation (EC) No 2792/1999 regarding Community structural assistance in the fisheries sector.

b) Reference Levels (mainland fleet)

The reference levels for the fleets of Member States are the sum of the global final objectives of Multiannual Guidance Programme (MAGP IV) as established by Article 12 of Council Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002. The general rule is that Member States may not exceed their reference levels at any time.

When a Member State undertakes decommissioning with public aid, these reference levels are automatically reduced by the amount of capacity scrapped. In addition, Member States which gave aid to construction of vessels until the end of 2004 will see their initial 2003 reference level reduced at least by 3% by the end of 2004.

Since most Member States were already well below this reference level at the beginning of 2004 its impact is not very significant. Compliance with this rule is, however, assessed in the annual report for 2004.

Since the reference levels are a legacy of MAGP IV[4] (period 1997 – 2002), the Council decided that they would not apply to the new Member States (Council Regulation (EC) No 1242/2004[5]).

c) Management of fleet reference levels in the outermost regions

The fishing fleets registered in the Community outermost regions, namely the French Overseas Departments, the Spanish Canary Islands and the Portuguese Azores and Madera have to comply with specific reference levels for these regions in accordance with Council Regulation (EC) No 639/2004[6] and Commission Regulation (EC) No 2104/2004[7].

d) Measurement of tonnage

The measurement of the Community fleet is based on Council Regulation (EC) No 3259/94[8] and Commission Decision No 95/84/EC[9]. These legislative acts establish that the tonnage of vessels of 15 m in length or more has to be measured in accordance with the London Convention, i.e. as a function of the vessel’s total enclosed volume, while for vessels of less than 15 m in length, the regulation defines a system of tonnage calculation based on an estimate of the hull’s volume.

The fleet should have been entirely measured in accordance with Community law by 31 December 2003. Nevertheless, at the end of 2004, there remained some vessels that were not measured in GT.

In cases where the measurement of the fleet has not been completed, the tonnage figures used in this report are a mixture of GT and GRT. That is, for vessels whose GT tonnage is not available the GRT value is used.

3. Community Fishing Fleet Register

In 2004, the new Community Fleet Register was set up in accordance with Commission Regulation (EC) No 26/2004. It became operational on 1st September 2004. This change was necessary in order to follow up the new rules for managing the fishing capacity of the EU fleet which entered into force on 1st January 2003. This system, following the 2002 CFP reform , gives more responsibility to the Member States in achieving a better balance between the fishing capacity of their fleets and the available resources.

The main tool for monitoring the fishing fleet is the Community Fleet Register (CFR). Member States are obliged on a regular basis to transmit all relevant information on the characteristics of approximately 90,000 marine fishing vessels, together with information on entries to and exits from the fleet. All information contained in the Technical Annexes 1, 2 and 3 has been taken from the CFR, with the exception of:

- data on entries corresponding to administrative decisions taken by national authorities before 1 January 2003 (or 1 May 2004 for the new Member States) and for which the special transitional provisions established in the regulation apply;

- data on exits with public aid in some cases where this was not available.

Only in these two cases the information has been taken directly from the Member States.

4. SUMMARY OF MEMBER STATES’ ANNUAL REPORTS

Only half of the Member States submitted their annual reports within the fixed deadline of 30 April 2005; some reports were delayed by up to two months. Despite several remainders, Slovenia did not submit its annual report. As a consequence of these delays, the Commission faced serious difficulties in respecting its deadlines for the submission of the summary report to the STECF and the Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture.

The format and content fixed by the regulation has not always been respected and the information included is not homogenous, which makes a common assessment of the Member States’ reports problematic. Only some Member States included in their reports an assessment of the balance between fishing fleet capacity and available fishing opportunities.

a) Description of the fleets in relation to the state of fisheries

Taking into account the strict rules for fleet capacity management both at Community and subsequently at national level, compared with 2003, there were no major changes during the year 2004 in the EU-15 Member States’ fleet figures. Regarding the new Member States the Commission may access the national fishing fleet developments of these countries only starting from 1 May 2004 and cannot provide a comparison with 2003.

The Member States’ annual reports provided a general description of the fishing fleets (e.g. number of vessels, capacity, target species and fishing areas) and explanation of the fleet segmentation system. Nevertheless, Member States used various segmentation systems: some Member States kept the MAGP IV segmentation, others used target species and fishing areas and some classified vessels by length or fishing gear.

The majority of Member States have reduced the capacity of their fleets during 2004 by means of decommissioning schemes. Some Member States stated that capacity reduction measures may be even stricter in future. Denmark, for example, noted that a national decommissioning scheme has been heavily oversubscribed but France stressed that fishing vessel modernisation measures are also a key factor in the sustainable management of resources.

It is important to note that within the Member States various measures are employed to ensure the sustainable management of fishing resources: fleet capacity reduction, limits of fishing days, restricted access to resources at national level, limited number of fishing licences, the allocation of fishing quotas, etc. For instance, in the United Kingdom fishing licences are the main fleet management tool.

Member States have found it difficult to establish a direct link between aid for permanent withdrawal or construction and developments in the state of stocks. This may be explained because some time is needed to see the impact of decommissioning on the state of stocks. Resources are also dependent on the rates of stock removal and fishing effort authorised at Community and national level. Nevertheless, Germany made a substantial analysis of the developments of national fishing fleet capacity linked to the available fish stocks and assessed capacity developments over 2003 – 2004.

b) Impact of effort reduction schemes on capacity

Cod recovery measures were the main effort reduction schemes applicable for Member States. Belgium, Denmark, France, Ireland, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom reported that they have been directly affected by fishing effort reduction measures in 2004. Particularly restrictions applied under Annex V of Council Regulation (EC) No 2287/2003 (hereafter Annex V) to the Kattegat, North Sea and Skagerrak, West of Scotland, Eastern Channel and Irish Sea. The implementation of these measures involved limiting the number of days which vessels spent at sea and the fishing gear used. The majority of Member States concerned reported an overall decrease in their fishing effort.

Denmark provided detailed information on the impact of the cod recovery plan for the North Sea in accordance with Annex V. Its annual report shows the development trends in the Danish fleet both tonnage and engine power in 2002 – 2004, divided by fleet segment (fishing vessel/gear type) and reported an overall reduction during 2004 in terms of “days/vessel” and “Kw.days/vessel”. The capacity of the Danish fleet was reduced by approximately 5000 GT (5% of total fishing fleet tonnage) by means of decommissioning schemes during 2003 and 2004.

The United Kingdom reported that the key effort control systems affecting their fleet in 2004 were the Western Waters effort regime, the Deep Water Species regime and the cod recovery plan. UK authorities noted an overall reduction in fishing effort under these measures and as a complement to the annual report submitted analytical research on fishing effort by UK vessels from 2001 to 2004 related to the cod recovery plan. The reduction in fishing effort was achieved mainly through a decommissioning scheme targeting vessels fishing significant amount of cod. In this way 16,600 GT left the UK’s fishing fleet at the end of 2003 and the beginning of 2004.

Sweden stated that the North Sea cod recovery plan restricted fishing effort for cod and this led to reduced opportunities for combining cod fishing in the Baltic Sea with fishing in Kattegatt and the North Sea/Skagerrak. In addition, the number of fishing days has been reduced and gear restrictions have been introduced, thus further limiting the fishing effort under the recovery plan.

The capacity of the French mainland fleet has been reduced mainly during 2004 by approximately 12,000 GT, representing 6% of its capacity. The decommissioning scheme aimed mainly the segment of trawlers targeting pelagic and demersal species in the North Sea, the Channel and the Atlantic area.

Several Member States fishing in the Baltic Sea noted that because of the very poor condition of cod stocks and the low level of available fishing quotas in the Baltic Sea there is a risk of fleet overcapacity. Poland and Latvia reported that owners of fishing vessels are actively applying for decommissioning with the assistance of the Community aid because of the poor condition of fish stocks in the Baltic Sea, particularly cod. The capacity withdrawn with public aid was of 2% of the tonnage in Latvia (950 GT) and 1.8 % in Poland (800 GT), but it should be noted that this reduction corresponds to a period of only 7 months.

Finland reported no special effort reduction schemes in 2004. However the Finish authorities included in their annual report a description of the exploitation percentage of TAC and quotas and stated that higher demanded quotas were herring, sprat and cod. Additionally Finland stated that fishing capacity is relatively high compared to the fishing possibilities.

There was a significant amount of capacity decommissioned in the Mediterranean by Italy, Greece and Spain but these cannot be attributed to effort reduction measures adopted at Community level.

c) Strengths and weaknesses

Implementation of the entry-exit regime and of the new reporting systems to send data to the Commission was a significant administrative task for most Member States during 2004. The main difficulties were organisational and related to the development and implementation of informatics tools.

Some new Member States stressed their limited fleet management administrative capacity. Despite the fact that, in general, new Member States’ administrations had adapted before the accession date to cope with the new administrative procedures, some practical changes came along with experience gained during 2004. Some of the new Member States noted that because of the accession to the EU, the year 2004 was a transitional period for the entire national fisheries sector, including the administration.

Despite the difficulties, all Member States’ fleet register information systems have been revised and updated to send the data to the Community Fishing Fleet Register in accordance with Commission Regulation (EC) No 26/2004. Some Member States noted that the quality of the data they send to the Commission significantly improved during 2004 and that an ongoing process of data cross-checking and verification is still taking place.

In parallel with these changes some Member States have developed new integrated fisheries information systems and various software applications have been introduced or significantly improved or developed. This was, for example, the case for Poland, Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Portugal and Latvia. These systems, which link together all major fishing management tools (e.g. fleet register, capacity management, licences, landings, available quotas, etc.) and in most cases also several responsible administrative bodies, have considerably strengthened national fishing fleet administrations.

Greece noted that the large amount of information and data which the Member States must collect in order to transmit the reports to the Commission, in conjunction with the large number of vessels in Greece and the innumerable daily changes in these data, have led to an increase in bureaucratic procedures resulting in shortcomings and delays both in recording changes in fishing vessels and sending them to the Commission and in collecting, cross-checking and verifying the data required in order to transmit the annual reports.

The French authorities consider that the overall system for managing the fishing fleet, which was implemented as from 1 January 2003 and is accompanied by the possibility of management plans and recovery plans, represents a marked improvement compared with MAGP IV.

Despite the above-mentioned problems, in general Member States considered that their national administrations have now adapted the entry-exit regime and the fishing fleet data reporting to the Commission. Moreover in 2004 a good and functional entry-exit management scheme has been established in all Member States. Additionally, some Member States noted that thanks to new Community fleet register reporting system the data in their national registers are now more accurate and complete.

In their reports, all Member States confirmed their compliance with the reference level and entry-exit regime, despite the slight non compliance shown by the data from the CFR.

Member States declared that the introduction of the entry-exit system contributed in 2004 to stabilising the balance between the available fishing resources and fishing capacity and that at national level it is important ensure that the fleet capacity adjustments generally are following the stock trends.

Sweden noted that the entry-exit scheme has not proved adequate as an instrument for regulating fleet capacity and that additional reductions in capacity would also be needed in order to achieve a balance between fishing capacity and available resources. This is also a prerequisite for the long-term viability of the fishing fleet and the recruitment of new fishermen. As fish stocks are expected to remain fragile over the coming years, a further reduction in the size of the fleet is also to be expected.

d) Compliance with the entry-exit regime and with levels of reference

Compliance with the entry-exit regime and with the reference levels (if applicable) at the end of 2004 is laid down in the Technical Annexes 1, 2 by application of the formulae fixed in Commission Regulation (EC) No 1438/2003. These technical annexes provide overall information on compliance and also of each Member State individually.

5. CONCLUSIONS FROM THE COMMISSION

The quality of the reports submitted by Member States has improved with respect to that of last year. Some Member States provided very detailed reports, whose content sometimes exceeded the information they were obliged to provide. Almost all the new Member States provided good quality information despite the fact that it was their first annual report on fleet management. Nevertheless, several Member States did not respect the annual report format and content established in Article 13 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1438/2003.

Generally speaking, Member States emphasised in their reports the implementation of national fleet management rather than the assessment of the balance between fishing fleet capacity and available fishing opportunities.

Results for the mainland fleet (Community fleet except vessels registered in the outermost regions):

According to the Community Fleet Register[10] during 2003 and 2004, the overall capacity of the Community fleet of the EU-15 Member States was reduced by 66.500 GT and 322.000 kW, which represents a net reduction of 3.6 % of the total tonnage and 4.7 % of power of the EU-15 fleet. The net reduction during 2004 was of approximately 23,000 GT while it was around 43,000 GT in 2003.

During 2003 and 2004 approximately 79,000 GT were withdrawn from the EU-15 fleet with public aid support, which means that this capacity cannot be replaced. The apparent contradiction arising from the fact that the capacity withdrawn with public is grater than the net capacity reduction is explained by the transitional measures allowing for the entry of vessels into the fleet not subject to the entry-exit regime. These provisions applied to the entries decided before the adoption of the new regulations and that had not taken place on 1 January 2003. The transitional period for the EU-15 Member States will come to an end on 31 December 2005.

In new Member States, starting from 1 May 2004, fleet capacity has been reduced by 7,000 GT and 18,800 kW, which represents a reduction of 3.1 % in the total tonnage and 3.3 % of power in the new Member States’ fleets. The great majority of the capacity withdrawn by the new Member States left the fleet without public aid.

Tables 1 and 2 in the technical annex 1 summarise compliance, at 31 December 2004, with the entry-exit regime and the reference levels. A majority of Member States have complied with these rules. However, Greece and Slovenia did not comply with the entry-exit regime in terms of power. Nevertheless, the degree of non-compliance for the above mentioned countries is very small. The Greek authorities contest the assessment of the Commission and point out that the failure to respect the entry-exit regime in terms of power is due to the transmission of incorrect data concerning the exits financed with public aid. According to the assessment made by the Greek authorities, Greece has complied with the entry exit regime.

The capacity of the French mainland fleet has slightly exceeded the tonnage ceiling during part of the two year period assessed in this report, although it complies with it on the 31 December 2004.

Tables 3 and 4 in the technical annex 1 provide a summary of the variation in fleet capacity from 1 January 2003 (1 May 2004 for the new Member States) to 31 December 2004. These tables include also the number of vessels. Table 3 covers all Member States.

The detailed assessment per Member State is included in the technical annex 2.

Results for the fleets registered in the outermost regions:

The capacity of the fleets registered in the outermost regions and its variation between 1 January 2003 and 31 December 2004 are shown in Table 4.

The tables in the technical annex 3 show the details of the application of the special regime for these fleets. One of the 17 outermost regions segments had exceeded their reference level in terms of power at the end of 2004, namely, the segment ‘4FJ - vessels under 12 m in length of the French Department of Martinique’. The special regime ceases to apply to these segments from the moment they reached their maximum reference level.

As explained above, this summary report is based on the Member States’ annual reports and on the data extracted from the CFR, except where these data were not available. Some discrepancies remain between the data presented by Member States in their reports and those resulting from their declarations to the CFR. These discrepancies are less important than the ones found in previous years but show that an additional effort should be made in order to eliminate them completely. The data presented by MS in their national reports do not modify the conclusions of the report.

It is important to note that some Member States have not yet completed the measurement of their fleet in GT tons in accordance with Community law.

According to Article 16 of Council Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002, those Member States that do not comply with the Articles 11, 13 and 15 of this Regulation shall be obliged to reduce their fishing effort to a level which would have existed if they had complied with the above mentioned articles. Additionally, they may be subject to a proportionate suspension of the Community financial assistance under the FIFG.

For further improvement of the annual reports the Commission, together with the Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture, should establish more detailed guidelines for their content and introduce a common harmonised methodological approach with greater emphasis on an analysis of the development of fishing capacity in relation to the available fish stocks. These issues will be discussed in forthcoming meetings of the Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture.

In forthcoming annual reports more attention should be paid to the contribution of the new regime adopted in 2002 to manage the Community fleet to a better balance between fleets and fish stocks. The impact of national decommissioning schemes, in particular on fishing effort reductions in fisheries subject to management or recovery plans, should be better identified and assessed.

TECHNICAL ANNEX 3 - RESULTS OF THE OUTERMOST REGIONS FLEETS MANAGMENT

This annex shows Member States compliance at 31 December 2004, with the capacity levels for outermost regions in accordance with Council Regulation (EC) No 639/2004 and Commission Regulation (EC) No 2104/2004.

The reference levels for the outermost regions were fixed for each segment of the fleet on the 1 January 2003. At any later date, the reference level for each segment is calculated by deducting from the initial reference levels the capacity withdrawn with public aid for that particular segment.

It is in this way that the graphs presented below have been calculated. Each of the tables summarises the situation on 31 December 2004
