  • [01] Fisheries: stocks are overexploited, fishing effort must be reduced

    The Group of Independent Experts convened by the Commission to evaluate the state of the fisheries stocks exploited by the European fleets has concluded its work. The overall picture from the report is clear: fish stocks throughout European Union waters are overexploited and significant reductions in fishing effort are required to remedy this situation. A large proportion of the stocks in all areas are exploited at levels of fishing mortality higher, and sometimes far higher, than the maximum that would allow a rational and sustainable fishery. Fishing mortality must be reduced on these stocks as a matter of great urgency. Even for the stocks which could, in principle, sustain current exploitation levels there would be significant gains to be made by reducing fishing mortality further in all but a very small number cases. The group advocates a progressive approach in which significant but not extreme reductions in effort are accompanied by a continuous monitoring of the state of the stocks.

    [02] Combattre le trafic illicite de matières nucléaires et de substances radioactives - actions mises en oeuvre par l'Union européenne

    A l'occasion du Sommet de Moscou sur la sûreté et la sécurité nucléaires où un programme de lutte contre le trafic illicite nucléaire était à l'ordre du jour, la Commission a adopté une communication présentant les actions menées depuis 1994 dans le cadre de la mise en oeuvre d'une stratégie européenne. La Commission constate qu'en 1995 les cas sérieux de trafic illicite ont été moins nombreux mais considère que certains travaux pourraient être accélérés ou approfondis.
