We want to know what you think about Defra’s policy on the use of reserve quota in England for 2020. Reserve quota - formerly known as uplift – is the additional quota used for fish that must be landed under the landing obligation. We review this policy regularly and want to take into account the views of the industry.
We’re also seeking views on updating the reserve quota policy section of the English Quota Management Rules.
This consultation is of interest to fishing industry, particularly vessels and producer organisations targeting quota species.

The consultation closes on 2nd March 2020.
