Proposed measures for sustainability include a progressive increase in net mesh sizes, the strengthening of the current ban on certain trawling activities to protect young fish, the prohibition of certain fishing practices which are considered detrimental to marine ecosystems and habitats, conservation provisions for swordfish, better control of fishing activities, the sharing of management responsibility between the EU and the Member States and the introduction of fishing effort management. Other questions on the agenda are the management of blue whiting fisheries, the fuel crisis and the future of fisheries. The Belgian delegation will draw the attention of the Council to the impact of increasing fuel prices on the fisheries industry.
