COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 3436/84

of 4 December 1984

laying down for 1985 certain measures for the conservation and management of fishery resources applicable to vessels flying the flag of Sweden

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 170/83 of 25 January 1983 establishing a Community system for the conservation and management of fishery resources (1), and in particular Article 11 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas, in accordance with the procedure provided for by the Fisheries Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Government of Sweden (2), and in particular Articles 2 and 6 thereof, the Community and Sweden have held consultations concerning their mutual fishing rights for 1985 and the management of common biological resources;

Whereas, in the course of these consultations, the delegations agreed to recommend to their respective authorities fixing certain fishing quotas for 1985 for the vessels of the other party;

Whereas, under the terms of Article 3 of Regulation (EEC) No 170/83, it is incumbent upon the Council to establish the total catches allocated to third countries and also the specific conditions under which the catches must be made;

Whereas the Agreement of 19 December 1966 between Denmark, Norway and Sweden on mutual access to fishing in Skagerrak and Kattegat provides that each Party shall grant access to fishing by vessels of the other Parties within its fishing zone in Skagerrak and part of Kattegat seawards of four nautical miles from the base-lines, without quantitative limitations;

Whereas the Convention of 31 December 1932 between Denmark and Sweden concerning fishing conditions in the maritime waters bordering on both Parties provides that each Party shall grant access to fishing by vessels of the other Party within its fishing zone in the Kattegat seawards of three nautical miles from the coast and in certain parts of OEresund and the Baltic Sea up to the base-lines, without quantitative limitations,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
