Rethinking of regional cooperation on fisheries measures in marine Natura 2000 and the designation of such sites 

Rethinking of regional cooperation on fisheries measures in marine Natura 2000 and the designation of such sites

Despite more than 10 years of regional cooperation on fisheries measures in Natura 2000 sites on the Dogger Bank still no measures have been yet agreed. According to a Nordic Marine Think-Tank report the current procedures involve waste of time and resources.

The study shows that the decision making process is laden with problems and that dialogue between fishing and environmental interests repeatedly takes place in separate fora. The same topic is discussed over and over again: first at national level, then at EU level and finally once more at national level. This is a non-productive chain of events.

The report proposes a single-stringed system, which works faster, is cheaper and leads to well accepted management measures. The proposal includes that Member States concerned at the very beginning should agree on a regional process assuring a common scientific basis, common negotiating process and stakeholder involvement. The agreement should include a time frame and mechanisms to ensure that deadlines are adhered to.

The proposal for a revised process is develop with support from the Nordic Council of Ministers as TemaNord report 514.
