Latvia

The Fisheries Law was amended to modify coastal fisheries management by defining all coastal quotas as a percentage of the Latvian total quota for the main regulated species in the Baltic Sea as well as allowing within the year for unused quota to be transferred from coastal to offshore fisheries. Other changes include a ban on gillnets in subsistence fisheries in public inland waters, introduction of some limits on fishing in inland waters, and a measure to combat IUU fishing that introduces new competencies to supervise Latvian nationals on vessels flagged outside Latvia.
