THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3759/92 of 17 December 1992 on the common organisation of the market in fishery and aquaculture products (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 3318/94 (2), and in particular the first subparagraph of Article 22(6) and Article 23(5) thereof,

Whereas Article 22(1) of Regulation (EEC) No 3759/92 provides, inter alia, for the annual fixing of reference prices by category of products, to be valid throughout the Community in respect of products listed in Annexes I, II, III, IV(B) and V to that Regulation, subject to the consultation procedures for certain products within the framework of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT); whereas the said prices have been adopted by the Commission in Regulation (EC) No 2573/97 (3);

Whereas the adjustment factors for frozen squid of the genus Loligo spp. which apply under the reference price system were amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No 901/98 (4) to take account of market and guide price movements; whereas these amendments mean an adjustment of the prices concerned;

Whereas, to meet the needs of the market, separate reference prices should be set for salted cod of the species Gadus macrocephalus; whereas the relevant presentations of salted cod should also be amended to take account of market conditions for these products;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Fishery Products,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
