Welcome to the homepage of the Baltic Sea Regional Advisory Council (BS RAC).
The main aim of the BS RAC is to advise the European Commission and Member States on matters relating to management of the fisheries in the Baltic Sea. It was created in 2006.
A new so-called Basic Regulation 1380 (2013) laying down rules and provisions for the Common Fisheries Policy was adopted at the end of 2013. It describes the role and function of the Advisory Councils in Articles 44 and 45 and in Annex III. Once they are all up and running, there will be 11 Advisory Councils.
