EU discussing Baltic salmon quota

Published fredag 21 oktober 2011 kl 15.17

An EU commission has begun negotiating a plan that could decrease the quota for salmon fishing in the Baltic Sea by 80 percent.

The new quota would hurt the small commercial fishers along Sweden's northern Baltic coastline. News agency TT reports that EU fish ministers are resisting the proposal.

Sweden also wants to lower the quota of allowable catches of salmon in the Baltic, but not as drastically as the EU proposal.

Sports fishers in Sweden welcome the 80 percent cut. They say salmon populations are under threat and the new quota will allow them to return to sustainable levels.
