Changes to fishing vessel licensing transactions

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we are following the Government’s advice on social distancing, with most MMO colleagues now working remotely. We are changing the way we deliver our services including how we handle fishing vessel licensing applications. Guidance on changes to the process is available at temporary fishing vessel licence applications
