Outline of the presentation <ul><ul><li>Brief sketch of the Natura2000 MPA’s in the Netherlands </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Maps, brief history </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Political principles that apply to these processes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Principles established in Dutch political culture </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The process to decide on fisheries measures in the coastal zone </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Independent chairman, small staff, stakeholders </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MPA’s in the Dutch EEZ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>FIMPAS ! </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Follow up </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Doggerbank issues </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>How and who cooperate </li></ul></ul></ul>
    3. 4. <ul><li>1 Introduction </li></ul>
    4. 5. Within the 12 mile-zone Vlakte van de Raan North Sea Coastal Zone 2
    5. 6. In the EEZ Cleaver Bank Frisian Front Dogger Bank
    6. 8. <ul><li>Next: MPA´s in the International North Sea </li></ul>
    7. 9. German North Sea UK North Sea Dutch North Sea
    8. 10. Developments in the Dutch North Sea fisheries sector <ul><li>The number of fishing vessels has declined significantly in the past few years </li></ul><ul><li>Pressure from society to make the sector more sustainable; use of new techniques such as the sum-wing, pulskor, longlining, flyshooten, hydro-rig and other experiments </li></ul><ul><li>Conversion to new fishing techniques </li></ul><ul><li>Current production costs require more cost-effective fishing techniques </li></ul><ul><li>New developments such as labelling schemes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Review of the CFP </li></ul></ul>
    9. 11. Fishing intensity Beamtrawl <300 en >300 hp (2007) TBS TBB >300 TBB <300
    10. 12. Interaction Nature / Fisheries industry <ul><li>Fishing has a significant impact e.g. on the benthic ecosystem, mammals and birds </li></ul><ul><li>This applies to bottom trawling in particular </li></ul><ul><li>Not all fisheries are damaging to the environment </li></ul><ul><li> Therefore a conflict analysis is needed: when are fisheries (not) in conformity with the conservation objectives </li></ul>Problem?
    11. 13. Role of the fishing industry <ul><li>Fishing industry will be affected by Natura 2000, </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>also by other developments: Wind farming, climate change, Marine strategy directive, CFP reform </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Fishing industry has a key role in shaping its own future </li></ul><ul><li>FIMPAS provides the platform to play this role </li></ul>
    12. 14. Sustainable fisheries <ul><li>Sustainable fishing will give preferential treatment in MPA’s </li></ul><ul><li>Pulse trawl, </li></ul><ul><li>Other, new developments: (electrical) Sumwing, switch to different types of fisheries, less damaging types </li></ul><ul><li>Etc. </li></ul><ul><li>MSC Certification </li></ul><ul><li>Shrimp fishing, gillnet fishing </li></ul><ul><li>Etc. </li></ul><ul><li>They will have more possibilities to fish in MPA’s </li></ul>
    13. 15. <ul><li>2 Political principles </li></ul>
    14. 16. Basic Principles <ul><li>Not more restrictions than necessary </li></ul><ul><li>Nature conservation stimulates innovation en sustainability </li></ul><ul><li>Allow fisheries where and when possible </li></ul><ul><li>Measures apply to all fishermen (also foreign) </li></ul><ul><li>Insight into the economic consequences </li></ul><ul><li>Regulation of fisheries activities through CFP </li></ul><ul><li>Wide support from the stakeholders </li></ul>
    15. 17. Endproduct specifications <ul><ul><li>The endproduct serves as the basis for a proposal to the Eur. Comm. containing fisheries measures for MPA’s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Has been sufficiently validated with the input of all relevant stakeholders to guarantee its quality </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Has sufficient consent of all partners involved </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fulfills all the conditions for a proposal as set out by the commission in its document on fisheries measures. </li></ul></ul>
    16. 18. Measures in the Natura2000 sites <ul><li>Measures are yet unknown </li></ul><ul><li>They depend on the advice from ICES and the support this gets from stakeholders </li></ul><ul><li>Government wants to achieve the conservation objectives within a reasonable period </li></ul><ul><li>Conservation of ecosystem values in these areas will stimulate more sustainable fisheries industry by establishing requirements for fishing techniques </li></ul>
    17. 19. Preliminary work <ul><li>Approval of the designated sites by the EC by placement on the EU list (Febr. 2010) </li></ul><ul><li>Amendment of the Nature Conservation Act to extend its application to the Dutch EEZ (spring 2010) <<postponed due to fall of the Dutch cabinet>> </li></ul><ul><li>5 Designation decrees in 2010/11 (+ public consultation procedure) </li></ul><ul><li>Investigation into possible additional areas under B&HD or MSFD: decision by 2012 </li></ul><ul><li>Fisheries measures </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Approval of the EC for the measures in the 12 mile zone > Measures to be taken in 2010 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>EC develops European regulation after Dutch proposals for measures in the EEZ > Measures in 2012 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Next: coastal zone </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    18. 20. <ul><li>3 COASTAL ZONE </li></ul>
    19. 21. Key question: how to involve stakeholders? <ul><li>Participation of stakeholders is necessary to provide and to improve of the quality of the data </li></ul><ul><li>Stakeholders’ views are necessary to get a solid view of practice </li></ul><ul><li>Stakeholders have alternative views and solutions that may generate the same protection </li></ul>

    21. 23. Details of 12 nm zone process: art 9 Basic Reg. CFP <ul><li>Two N2000 sites are within the 12 nm zone (North Sea Coastal Zone ‘2’ and Vlakte van de Raan) </li></ul><ul><li>Due to internal political and legal reasons regulation will take place in 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Measures are prepared in accordance with art 9 basic regulation CFP </li></ul><ul><li>Involvement of science, fisheries organisations and NGO’s </li></ul><ul><li>Planning </li></ul><ul><li>Agreement on fish. measures October ’10; </li></ul><ul><li>Designation decrees: drafts have been submitted (april ’10); </li></ul><ul><li>(pre-)notification start in november / december </li></ul><ul><li>Next: FIMPAS </li></ul>
