(2001/C 26 E/086) WRITTEN QUESTION E-0603/00
by Camilo Nogueira Román (Verts/ALE) to the Commission

(3 March 2000)

Subject: Setting up the Southwest Atlantic Fisheries Organisation

The EU is taking part in the talks on setting up the Southwest Atlantic Fisheries Organisation, a new
multilateral body for fishing in West African waters. Since the fishing industry may be affected by this new
body, what position will the EU be adopting with regard to consulting the industry?

Answer given by Mr Fischler on behalf of the Commission

(27 April 2000)

The Commission takes care to consult the fishing industry when preparing for negotiations within the
international fishery organisations.

For instance, it organised a meeting (Brussels, 17 March) to consult the organisations with an interest in
the work of the Resource Allocation Group of the International Commission for the Conservation of
Atlantic Tunas.

Such consultation would be premature in the case of the South East Atlantic Fisheries Organisation since
the instruments to establish it are only at the preparatory stage. The industry will be consulted when it has
been set up.
