Fisheries Agreements with Third Countries - is the EU moving towards Sustainable Development?

The Report aims to review the progress in adapting access agreements to the EU’s sustainable development commitments, by reviewing four recently-concluded EC agreementswith São Tomé e Príncipe, Angola, Senegal and Mauritania. In each case, an analysis is given of the agreements, in terms of their cost per vessel or tonne of vessel, the use of TACs or effort controls to regulate fishing pressure under the agreements, and the estimated value of catches under each agreement.
