Concern Over Cod Quota Increase

Protesters outside the EU meeting

There’s concern here after EU fisheries ministers raised the quotas for cod fishing in the Baltic Sea next year.

Experts at the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea had recommended a total catch limit of 15,000 tons. Instead, the council of ministers followed the European Commission’s proposal to permit three times that level.

Swedish Minister of Agriculture Ann-Christin Nykvist, who was the sole vote against the increase, expressed her disappointment afterwards. She said the commission and the current EU president Britain had been far too accommodating.

Sweden also unsuccessfully opposed a plan to allow individual countries to pick which days during the year fishing will be banned, saying that would make supervision difficult.
