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), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 806/2003(2), and in particular Article 21(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Council Regulation (EC) No 2340/2002 of 16 December 2002 fixing for 2003 and 2004 the fishing opportunities for deep-sea fish stocks(3) lays down quotas for ling for 2003.

(2) In order to ensure compliance with the provisions relating to the quantity limits on catches of stocks subject to quotas, the Commission must fix the date by which catches made by vessels flying the flag of a Member State are deemed to have exhausted the quota allocated.

(3) According to the information received by the Commission, catches of ling in the waters of ICES division III (EC waters and waters not falling under the sovereignty or within the jurisdiction of third countries), by vessels flying the flag of Sweden or registered in Sweden have exhausted the quota allocated for 2003. Sweden has prohibited fishing for this stock from 31 August 2003. This date should consequently be adopted in this Regulation,
