The MMO is urging fishermen who are not members of a Producers Organisation to apply for additional quota
The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is urging fishermen who are not in a Producer Organisation to check out an opportunity to boost their catch limits for 2023.
Unallocated quota remains in the over-10m non-sector pool for vessels with Category B, C and no-quota annex licences.
This offer means that a small amount of the additional quota that England received from the Trade and Cooperation Agreement will be distributed via the MMO to these vessels upon application and depending on availability.
For a list of available stocks email [email protected] as soon as possible. Applications for access to this additional quota are required by 17:00 Sunday 13 August 2023.
Applications made after this date will still be considered but quota availability after this deadline may be reduced.
Applications must include vessel details (name, PLN and licence number), a basic fishing plan and what quantity of individual stocks required.
