    “when the remaining regulations have been adapted to the new concept, it could enter into force on discards landing”

    NO!!! Stop NOW! Anyone with any environmental concerns, such as spain now pretends it has, would have been working to reduce discards for years. What economic sense is there in spending hours or days trawling up fish only to throw them back. Probably dead. Consider the southern coast of spain. Where do the poaching boats go? British Gibraltar Territorial Waters (BGTW) because the greedy spanish have caught everything in their own waters. They now even rake the seabed! Spain needs to be stopped.
