COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 380/82

of 15 February 1982

laying down certain interim measures for the conservation and management of fishery resources applicable to vessels registered in the Faroe Islands

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to the Fisheries Agreement between the European Economic Community, on the one hand, and the Government of Denmark and the local Government of the Faroe Islands, on the other hand (1), and in particular Article 2 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas in accordance with the procedure provided for by the said Agreement, and in particular Article 2 thereof, the Community, on the one hand, and the Government of Denmark and the local Government of the Faroe Islands, on the other hand, have held consultations concerning their mutual fishing rights for 1982;

Whereas during these consultations the delegations agreed to recommend to their respective authorities that they fix certain catch quotas for 1982 for vessels of the other Party;

Whereas in order to avoid a too long interruption of reciprocal fishing by vessels of the two parties in the fisheries zone of the other, it is necessary that the Community adopt immediately interim rules authorizing fishing by Faroese vessels in the Community fisheries zone;

Whereas, consequently, this measure should be adopted on a temporary basis, subject to its later inclusion in the definitive rules to be adopted under Article 43 of the Treaty,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
