The Seychelles and the European Union sign a fisheries agreement




Seychelles and the European Union (EU) signed in Victoria a fisheries agreement allowing ships flying Seychellois flag to operate in Mayotte waters when the island of perfumes accesses to the status of outermost regions (RUP) January 1, 2014.
 
Eight tuna seiner boats will thus be allowed six years to fish in the area, and after the payment of a license.
 
For the European Union, it is the first intergovernmental agreement which grants a right to fish in its territorial waters for vessels of third countries.

Seychellois tuna will however be subject to the regulations of the common policy of the EU governing the fisheries sector as well as to the conservation and management measures established by the tuna Commission of the Indian Ocean (IOTC), organization in charge of the management of the tuna stocks in the Indian Ocean region.
