COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 3226/94 of 22 December 1994 concerning the stopping of fishing for Greenland halibut by vessels flying the flag of the United Kingdom

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2847/93 of 12 October 1993 establishing a control system applicable to the common fisheries policy (1), and in particular Article 21 (3) thereof,

Whereas Council Regulation (EC) No 3693/93 of 21 December 1993 allocating, for 1994, Community catch quotas in Greenland waters (2), provides for Greenland halibut quotas for 1994;

Whereas, in order to ensure compliance with the provisions relating to the quantitative limitations on catches of stocks subject to quotas, it is necessary for the Commission to fix the date by which catches made by vessels flying the flag of a Member State are deemed to have exhausted the quota allocated;

Whereas, according to the information communicated to the Commission, catches of Greenland halibut in the waters of ICES divisions V, XIV (Greenland waters) by vessels flying the flag of the United Kingdom or registered in the United Kingdom have reached the quota allocated for 1994; whereas the United Kingdom has prohibited fishing for this stock as from 14 December 1994; whereas it is therefore necessary to abide by that date,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

It shall apply with effect from 14 December 1994.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 22 December 1994.
