The Diplomat. 15/04/2018


The Council of Ministers authorized this Friday the signing of the bilateral fishing agreement between Spain and Portugal on the conditions of exercise of the activity of the Spanish and Portuguese fleets in the waters of both countries.


The agreement, whose authorization comes on the eve of the three-day official visit that will begin tomorrow in Spain, the Portuguese president, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, will replace the one signed in 2014 between the two countries and will allow the proper management of fishing in the exclusive economic zones, in addition to providing stability to the operators of both countries.


The agreement, which will be valid for five years, will set the areas where the fishing activity of each country can be carried out. These areas are the mouths of the rivers Miño and Guadiana and the waters subject to sovereignty or Spanish and Portuguese jurisdiction of the Atlantic Ocean that surround the Iberian Peninsula.


As the Government recalled, the fishing presence of the Spanish and Portuguese fleets in the waters of the neighboring country has been regulated since 1986 by the bilateral agreements signed between the Kingdom of Spain and the Portuguese Republic, “which shows the stable relationship in this area It has remained”. These agreements, it continued, “have worked correctly, being very beneficial for the fishing sector in both Spain and Portugal”.
