Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Government maintains sardine fishing ban until 3 June

Lisbon, May 15, 2019 (Lusa) – The Portuguese government is to maintain until 3 June a sardine fishing ban decided in September, it said on Wednesday.
According to the order, from 3 June until midnight of 31 July, the limit of unloading of sardines (Sardina Pilchardus) captured through seine fishing by the Portuguese fleet is 5,000 tonnes.
These 5,000 tonnes are to be distributed among the group of vessels whose owners are members of the organisations and producers for sardines, corresponding to each of the groups, respectively, 4,925 tonnes and 75 tonnes.
Since September 2018, fishermen from Portugal and Spain have been unable to catch sardines to protect the stock, following a recommendation of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) for 2019, with the agreement of the European Commission.
These catch limitations should allow to “ensure the management of catches until July, as well as the protection of juveniles by adjusting the quantities of sardines classified as T4 by the seine fleet, and by implementing real-time closures, measures taken by both countries in the recovery plan.”
Last week, Portuguese and Spanish fishermen were outraged by the proposal of catches of 10,799 tonnes of sardines this year, already confirmed by the government, asking in Brussels the reassessment of the quota based on recent scientific cruises.
The sardines’ fisheries organisations have called for “negotiations to be re-opened in July and fishing opportunities to be re-analysed.”
