SPAIN - The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment has got an extension for the anchovy quota in the Bay of Biscay of 1,646 tonnes for the 2013-2014 fishing season.
The increase, approved by the Management Committee of the European Commission, has now been published in the Implementing Regulations of the Commission.
The remaining amount comes from an approved fee corresponding to Spain in the period 2012-2013, and now joins the fee initially approved in 2013.
Thus, the Spanish fleet dedicated to the anchovy fishery in the Bay of Biscay has a total of 15,226 tonnes until June 30, 2014.
