MEPs take up new fisheries policy powers

MEPs began acting on their new Lisbon Treaty power to co-decide fisheries policy with Member States on 1 December – the day the treaty took effect – with a Fisheries Committee indicative vote on three legislative proposals: a long-term management plan for Bay of Biscay anchovy, a multi-annual management plan for Atlantic horse mackerel and control and enforcement measures in the North-East Atlantic fisheries.
