Ministerial meeting on mackerel management

The discussions on a quota sharing agreement were inconclusive. The respective positions remain too far apart.

All parties agree that the effort to find an agreement should continue in the autumn coastal state consultation process.

All parties agree on the need to respect scientific advice.

Joint statement by European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Maria Damamaki and Norwegian Minister for Fisheries Lisbeth Berg-Hansen:

We are extremely dissapointed at the inconclusive outcome og today's Ministerial meeting on mackerel management. We will continue to work closely together on this key issue, by all necessary means.
