At the meeting of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council held on 10th October 2016 EU fisheries ministers agreed on next year's fishing limits (TACs) for ten fish stocks of the Baltic Sea. The agreement includes an increase in catches for herring (except in the Gulf of Riga), plaice, and salmon (except in the Gulf of Finland) in line with the Commission proposal. Ministers also decided for a smaller increase for sprat and for no increase for salmon in the main basin. Moreover, the following reductions were also agreed on: -25% for Eastern cod, -56% for Western cod, -11% for herring in the Gulf of Riga and -20% for salmon in the Gulf of Finland. These TACs were the first to be set in accordance with the long-term management plan for the Baltic basin that had recently been adopted by the Council and the European Parliament. Following the agreement by EU Fisheries Ministers, the Council adopted a Regulation fixing 2017 TACs and quotas for the Baltic Sea.
