Agreed TACs compared to ICES scientific advice in the EU-Norway Agreement
Briefing by Our Fish, contributing author Griffin Carpenter
This study analyses the total allowable catches (TACs) agreed between the EU and the Norwegian Government as part of the annual EU-Norway Agreement. These TACs are of critical importance forthe sustainability of European waters. Indeed, the EU-Norway Agreement TACs are simply approved at the EU’s December Council. In analysing the EU-Norway Agreement TACs, this study also draws attention to the role of Norway as an actor in the TAC setting process, whereas previous analysis has mainly focused on the EU due to its larger size and number of TACs.
