Advice & Recommendations

During the more than 17 years the organisation has been active, the recommendations produced have covered a wide range of topics. The BSAC has advised on fishing quotas, marine spatial planning, technical measures but also on recreational fishing or offshore windfarms. These have sometimes taken the form of letters with compromise positions or divided answers to targeted questionnaires. However, these recommendations are always the product of members’ input whether it is by writing or during meetings.

BSAC letter to MS: Criteria used to define small-scale fishing vessels

The Executive Committee has given a new mandate to the Focus Group on rules of procedure to look into proposing a suitable BSAC definition of small-scale fishing vessels as well as indicators to establish what share such vessels would represent of a Member State’s fishing fleet.

The FG met on the 5th March and has proposed a letter to be addressed to the Member States representatives.

The Executive Committee validated the letter that was subsequently sent on the 3rd April 2024.
