THE European Commission (EC) has overseen a new Fisheries Partnership Agreement in Brussels between the EU and the Republic of Guinea Bissau. The agreement will cover a renewable period of three years. It confirms the EU's commitment to strengthening sustainable fisheries, where its fleets operate. It includes a new protocol allowing the catching of tuna, cephalopods, shrimp and fish. Most significantly, the number of tuna vessel licences will be cut to 37 from the current 70.
