(c) (a) reduction of fishing capacity and fishing effort;

(d) (b) technical measures, including

(1) characteristics of fishing gear, in particular mesh size, twine thickness, size of the gear);

(2) use of the fishing gear, in particular immersion time, depth of gear deployment);

(3) prohibition or limitation to fish using specific types of gear;

(4) prohibition or limitation to fish in specific areas;

(4) prohibition or limitation to fish during specific time periods;

2. The measures referred to in paragraph 1 shall aim at achieving the objective set out in Article 3(3) and be based on scientific advice.

3. The Member States concerned may submit joint recommendations in accordance with Article 18(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1380/2013 for specific conservation measures as referred to in paragraph 1.

Article 8

Incidental capture of seabirds, turtles and marine mammals

1. Masters of fishing vessels shall promptly release unharmed and alive, seabirds, reptiles and marine mammals incidentally caught in fishing gears. When the condition of the animal requires veterinary treatment, it shall instead be brought ashore. In this case, masters of fishing vessels shall see to it that the animal is handed over to the marine animal rescue centre.

Justification

N.B. the provisions in Article 7 are analogous to those the Commission proposes for plaice, flounder, turbot and brill. The provision in Article 8 is analogous to provisions on marine mammals, turtles and seabirds in the Provisions for fishing in the GFCM Agreement Area.
