  5. FIDES/CRONT versus sent data

  6. Current Situation • 400 mio € per year for control of which more than 200 mio € for controls at sea • No reliable catch registration • No verification and cross checking • False catch declarations to Commission

  7. Current Situation • Inspections of limited effectiveness • Inappropriate systems for following up infringements and imposing sanctions • Penalties paid in 2005 were 10,8 mio € or less than 0,17% of the value of 2004 landings • average fine of 2 000 €

  8. If we don’t act • We will continue vicious circle of false catch declarations  fed into scientific assessment  leeds to poor advice  leeds to lower respect for rules  leeds to unsustainable additional pressure on stocks • Loss of jobs in coastal areas • CFP is put into question
