- the following entry shall be added after the entry concerning Flatfish in zone Vb (Faroese waters):
- Examples of such needs include provision of hiding places for wrasse, or substrate such as sand for some flatfish.
- Quota flexibility for sole in zone II, North Sea should be allowed to improve the compatibility of quotas for flatfish in the North Sea and reduce discards.
- For some species, environmental enrichment may be necessary to take account of their behavioural traits, for example, in reproduction or predation. Examples of such needs include provision of hiding places for wrasse, or substrate such as sand for some flatfish.
- “stocking density” in the framework of aquaculture, means the live weight of animals per cubic metre of water at any time during the grow-out phase and in the case of flatfish and shrimp the weight per square metre of surface.
- Examples of such needs include provision of hiding places for wrasse, or substrate such as sand for some flatfish. Care is needed to ensure that environmental enrichment does not adversely affect water quality, but this should not impede the development of suitable measures to enhance the welfare of fish.
- The Netherlands submitted data demonstrating that vessels, which have ceased activities since 1 January 2002, deployed 14,18 % of the fishing effort deployed in 2001 by Dutch vessels present within the geographical area and carrying on board beam trawls of mesh size equal to or greater than 80 mm. Within the philosophy of Regulation (EC) No 51/2006, the Dutch Authorities have committed themselves to reduce the fishing effort deployed in flatfish fisheries.
