Pelagic fishermen say quality assurance system may not be fit-for-purpose

The EU, Norway and Faroes have today (29/11) signed a tripartite agreement in Bergen, Norway, setting a Total Allowable Quota for mackerel in 2019 at 653,438 tonnes, down 20% reduction on the current TAC. While the KFO is disappointed with the outcome, it is not surprised, given that scientific advice issued at the end of September recommended a much larger reduction of 61%.
