COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 776/2005

of 19 May 2005

adapting certain fish quotas for 2005 pursuant to Council Regulation (EC) No 847/96 introducing additional conditions for year-to-year management of TACs and quotas

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002 of 20 December 2002 on the conservation and sustainable exploitation of fisheries resources under the Common Fisheries Policy (1), and in particular Article 23(4) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 847/96 of 6 May 1996 introducing additional conditions for year-to-year management of TACs and quotas (2), and in particular Articles 3(3), 4(2) and 5,

Whereas:

(1)

Council Regulation (EC) No 2340/2002 of 16 December 2002 fixing for 2003 and 2004 the fishing opportunities for deep-sea fish stocks (3) and Council Regulation (EC) No 2287/2003 of 19 December 2003 fixing for 2004 the fishing opportunities and associated conditions for certain fish stocks and groups of fish stocks, applicable in Community waters and, for Community vessels, in waters where catch limitations are required (4), specify which stocks may be subject to the measures foreseen by Regulation (EC) No 847/96.

(2)

Council Regulation (EC) No 2270/2004 (5) and Council Regulation (EC) No 27/2005 of 22 December 2004 fixing for 2005 the fishing opportunities and associated conditions for certain fish stocks and groups of fish stocks, applicable in Community waters and, for Community vessels, in waters where catch limitations are required (6) fix quotas for certain stocks for 2005.

(3)

Certain Member States have requested, pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 847/96, that part of their quotas be transferred to the following year. Within the limits indicated in that Regulation, the quantities withheld should be added to the quota for 2005.

(4)

Under Regulation (EC) No 847/96, deductions from national quotas for 2005 should be made at a level equivalent to the quantity fished in excess. Those deductions shall be applied taking into account also the specific provisions governing stocks falling within the scope of Regional Fisheries Organisations.

(5)

Regulation (EC) No 847/96 also provides that weighted deductions from national quotas for 2005 should be made in the case of overfishing of permitted landings in 2004 for certain stocks identified in Regulation (EC) No 2270/2004 and in Regulation (EC) No 2287/2003.

(6)

Certain Member States have requested, pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 847/96, permission to land additional quantities of fish of certain stocks. Those exceeding permitted landings should however be deducted from their quotas for 2005.

(7)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The quotas fixed in Regulation (EC) No 2270/2004 and in Regulation (EC) No 27/2005 are increased as shown in Annex I or reduced as shown in Annex II.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the seventh day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 19 May 2005.
