The master of a non-Contracting Party fishing vessel may only call into a port designated in accordance with Article 23.
The master intending to call into a port of a Member State shall notify the competent authorities of the port Member State in accordance with the provisions of Article 24.
As such large vessels can enter only a few ports, smaller vessels such as the ones to be built by VWS will still be needed to handle freight.
if a joint flight has to stop over at an airport of another Member State for the collection of returnees, it is the responsibility of that Member State to provide for a secure area at the airport
Therefore, requirements foreseen in this Directive are not relevant for Member States which do not have any ports at which ships falling under the scope of this Directive normally can call.
coastal fisheries means fishing carried out with the aid of vessels which return every day or within 36 hours to a port situated in the territory of a Member State without calling at a port situated in a third country
