Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Luis Planas presented on Friday, at the Council of Ministers, a report on the network of bilateral fisheries agreements of the European Union with third countries and their role in maintaining a competitive and sustainable Spanish fleet.

These are agreements with African and Pacific Ocean countries, from which Spain is the EU country that benefits most, by obtaining the largest number of licenses.

Current agreements

There are currently 12 Fisheries Partnership Agreements with existing protocols, or pending their coming into force, with developing countries: Cape Verde, Ivory Coast, Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Cook Islands, Liberia, Morocco, Mauritius, Mauritania , Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal and Seychelles, which offer fishing opportunities to some 250 Spanish-flagged vessels and approximately 2,500 crew members.

The fish caught under these agreements is landed and / or commercialized in a high percentage in the Spanish ports, which generates a network on which other related activities depend and constitutes, in practice, the main economic engine in large coastal regions of Spain.

These fisheries partnership agreements are also a key instrument for the extension, to developing countries, of the European model of sustainable and responsible fishing, since the Spanish and European fleets use only surplus resources, according to the best available science.

During the last year, several important agreements for the Spanish fishing fleet were renewed, such as those of Morocco, Guinea Bissau, Senegal and Gambia, and negotiations for others were launched. This implies the possibility of maintaining the activity of Spanish vessels, with all that it means, and also, in the case of Morocco, it transcends the fishing area, reinforcing the essential bilateral and neighborhood relationship between the two countries.

The minister stressed that the renewal of the EU - Morocco Fishing Agreement is “especially emblematic” for the Spanish fleet, given that a good number of artisanal fleets from the Gulf of Cádiz and the Canary Islands depend on it, and It also benefits Galician ships.

The agreement entered into force on July 18, 2019, once all the mandatory procedures for its conclusion and signature by both parties have been passed, and will be valid until July 17, 2023.

For Spain, the agreement reached is considered very beneficial since of the 138 possible licenses, 93 correspond.

In addition, the minister announced that the first round of negotiations for the renewal of the EU - Seychelles Fisheries Agreement will take place in the week of August 19-22, the most important in the Indian Ocean for the Spanish fleet of freezer tuna vessels, with a current use of 14 ships.

        

Suspended agreements

Other agreements with upcoming negotiations are that of the EU - Madagascar, important for tuna vessels and surface longline fleet, on which an upcoming round of negotiation is planned, and that of the EU - Kiribati, essential for the permanence of the Spanish fleet in the Pacific, complementing the agreement with Cook Islands, which is waiting for the fourth round of negotiations in the coming months.

The EU's sustainable fisheries partnership agreements with third countries are configured as an essential instrument for the maintenance of the activity of the Spanish fishing fleet, which with its 9,000 vessels is positioned as the first fishing power at EU level and one of the main worldwide.

They also represent an important contribution to certain coastal communities in Spain, in economic, social and employment terms. Therefore, the Government considers important to promote its strengthening and renewal at European level, taking into account the Spanish prominence in the vast majority of them.
