EU News 464/2014
Brussels, 17 November 2014
The European Union has welcomed the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic's Tuna (ICCAT) decision to increase the quota for Eastern and Mediterranean Bluefin tuna by just under 20% a year over the next three years. This moderate increase is fully in line with scientific advice and comes after several years of prudent management following the near collapse of the stock.
