COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2015/1801

of 7 October 2015

operating deductions from fishing quotas available for certain stocks in 2015 on account of overfishing in the previous years

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 of 20 November 2009 establishing a Community control system for ensuring compliance with the rules of the common fisheries policy, amending Regulations (EC) No 847/96, (EC) No 2371/2002, (EC) No 811/2004, (EC) No 768/2005, (EC) No 2115/2005, (EC) No 2166/2005, (EC) No 388/2006, (EC) No 509/2007, (EC) No 676/2007, (EC) No 1098/2007, (EC) No 1300/2008, (EC) No 1342/2008 and repealing Regulations (EEC) No 2847/93, (EC) No 1627/94 and (EC) No 1966/2006 (1), and in particular Article 105(1), (2) and (3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Fishing quotas for the year 2014 have been established by:

Council Regulation (EU) No 1262/2012 (2),

Council Regulation (EU) No 1180/2013 (3),

Council Regulation (EU) No 24/2014 (4), and

Council Regulation (EU) No 43/2014 (5).

(2)

Fishing quotas for the year 2015 have been established by:

Council Regulation (EU) No 1221/2014 (6),

Council Regulation (EU) No 1367/2014 (7),

Council Regulation (EU) 2015/104 (8), and

Council Regulation (EU) 2015/106 (9).

(3)

According to Article 105(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009, when the Commission has established that a Member State has exceeded the fishing quotas which have been allocated to it, the Commission is to operate deductions from future fishing quotas of that Member State.

(4)

Article 105(2) and (3) of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 provides that such deductions have to be operated in the following year or years by applying the respective multiplying factors as set out therein.

(5)

Certain Member States have exceeded their fishing quotas for the year 2014. It is therefore appropriate to operate deductions on the fishing quotas allocated to them in 2015 and, where appropriate, in subsequent years, for the overfished stocks.

(6)

Spain has overfished in 2012 its quota for the stock of Norway lobster in area IX and X; EU waters of CECAF 34.1.1 (NEP/93411). The deduction of 75,45 tonnes that resulted from this overfishing was applicable in 2013 and was spread at Spain's request over three years starting in 2013. The remaining annual deduction applicable to the Spanish quota for the NEP/93411 stock amounts to 19 tonnes in 2015, without prejudice to any further quota adaptation.

(7)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 871/2014 (10) and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1360/2014 (11) have provided for deductions from fishing quotas for certain countries and species for 2014. However, for certain Member States the deductions to be applied for some species were higher than the respective quotas available in 2014 and could therefore not be operated entirely in that year. To ensure that in such cases the full amount for the respective stocks be deducted, the remaining quantities should be taken into account when establishing deductions for 2015 and, where appropriate, from subsequent quotas.

(8)

Deductions from fishing quotas, as provided for by this Regulation, should apply without prejudice to deductions applicable to 2015 quotas pursuant to Commission Regulation (EU) No 165/2011 (12) and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 185/2013 (13).

(9)

Since quotas are expressed in tonnes or entire pieces, quantities below 1 tonne or one piece should not been considered,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1.   The fishing quotas fixed in Regulations (EU) No 1221/2014, (EU) No 1367/2014, (EU) 2015/104 and (EU) 2015/106 for the year 2015 shall be reduced as set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

2.   Paragraph 1 shall apply without prejudice to deductions provided for in Regulation (EU) No 165/2011 and Implementing Regulation (EU) No 185/2013.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the seventh day following that of 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, 7 October 2015.
