The pursuit of rays. Towards improved mangement of ray stocks in the North Sea and English Channel

Within the Interreg 2 Seas project « Sumaris », ILVO will collect biological, economic and data on the most important ray species in the North Sea and the English Channel. Under the current mangement of rays and skates, no distinction is made between the different species (vulnerable vs. less vulnerable). The analysis of all collected data would help in development of a joint-strategy management system. The ultimate goal is more efficient mangement and correct implementation of the Landing Obbligation.

To find the answer on this question, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, in partnership with ILVO, compiles the Fleet Report for Belgian fisheries.
If an imbalance occurs, e.g., when a certain stock is under pressure or fleet capacity is too high, Belgium needs to develop an Action Plan with measures to bring it back into balance.
