Fish catch exceeded

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE European Commission (EC) will penalise Spain for exceeding its catch quota for mackerel in the Bay of Biscay (Cantabrian Sea) by 20 000 tonnes, or 80% of the total quota, in 2010. The country must return 39 242 tonnes of mackerel – twice the amount wrongfully caught in the period – between 2011 and 2015, which will mean cuts in the next instalments, EU sources confirmed.
