Amendment 2
Anja Hazekamp

Proposal for a regulation
Recital 13

Text proposed by the Commission

(13) It is necessary to establish conservation reference points to allow for additional precaution when a stock size is reduced to certain critical level posing serious risk. Such conservation reference points should be determined at levels of minimum spawning biomass of a stock that is consistent with full reproductive capacity. Remedial measures should be envisaged in case the stock size falls below minimum spawning biomass.

Amendment

(13) It is necessary to establish conservation reference points to allow for additional precaution when a stock size is reduced to certain critical level posing serious risk. Such conservation reference points should be determined at levels of biomass corresponding to maximum sustainable yield (Bmsy) of a stock. Remedial measures should be envisaged in case the stock size falls below this level.

Justification

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.
