COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 2033/2005
of 8 December 2005
fixing for the 2006 fishing year the guide prices and Community producer prices for certain fishery products pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 104/2000
THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,
Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,
Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 of 17 December 1999 on the common organisation of the markets in fishery and aquaculture products (1), and in particular Article 18(3) and Article 26(1) thereof,
Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,
Whereas:

(1)

Article 18(1) and Article 26(1) of Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 provide that a guide price and a Community producer price should be fixed for each fishing year in order to determine price levels for intervention on the market for certain fisheries products.

(2)

Article 18(1) of Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 requires the guide price to be fixed for each of the products and groups of products listed in Annexes I and II to that Regulation.

(3)

On the basis of currently available data on the prices for the products concerned and the criteria referred to in Article 18(2) of Regulation (EC) No 104/2000, the guide prices should be increased, maintained or reduced for the 2006 fishing year depending on the species.

(4)

Article 26(1) of Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 requires the Community producer price to be fixed for the products listed in Annex III to that Regulation. It is appropriate to establish the Community producer price for one of those products and calculate the Community producer price for the others by means of the conversion factors established by Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3510/82 of 23 December 1982 fixing the conversion factors applicable to fish of the genera Thunnus and Euthynnus
 (2).

(5)

On the basis of the criteria laid down in the first and second indents of Article 18(2) and in Article 26(1) of Regulation (EC) No 104/2000, the Community producer price for the 2006 fishing year should be adjusted.

(6)

Given the urgency of the matter, it is important to grant an exception to the six-week period mentioned in paragraph 1(3) of the Protocol on the role of national parliaments in the European Union annexed to the Treaty on the European Union,
HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
Article 1
For the fishing year from 1 January to 31 December 2006, the guide prices as provided for in Article 18(1) of Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 shall be as set out in Annex I to this Regulation.
Article 2
For the fishing year from 1 January to 31 December 2006, the Community producer prices as provided for in Article 26(1) of Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 shall be as set out in Annex II to this Regulation.
Article 3
This Regulation shall enter into force on 1 January 2006.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.
Done at Brussels, 8 December 2005.
