Amendment 10

Proposal for a regulation
Article 5 – paragraph 1 – introductory part

Text proposed by the Commission

1. The conservation reference points expressed in minimum spawning biomass level that is consistent with full reproductive capacity shall be for the stocks concerned as follows:


1. To ensure that fish populations do not exceed the lower limit corresponding to maximum sustainable yield, conservation reference points are expressed in biomass corresponding to maximum sustainable yield (Bmsy), which shall be for the stocks concerned as follows:

(This amendment requires further changes to be made in the table below. The minimum spawning biomass levels will need to be replaced by biomass figures corresponding to maximum sustainable yield.)


In the Commission proposal, measures will only be taken when the biomass falls below a critical level known as Bpa. This is not a very ambitious approach. As the biomass corresponding to Maximum Sustainable Yield already constitutes a lower limit that should not be exceeded, conservation reference points should also be set at this level so that urgent action is taken in case biomass drops below it.
