Detail of outcome
The details of the consultation are taken into consideration when producing the monthly catch limits.
The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) sets monthly catch limits for quota species to ensure the UK stays within the overall limit set by the EU. These limits apply to all under 10 meter vessels and the over 10 meter vessels that are not in a co-operative (Producer Organisation).
Please contact the MMO if you have any comment to make about the suggested catch limits which will be put into force on 1 September 2017.
Comments to be received no later than 5pm Wednesday 28 August 2017.
The MMO will regularly consult industry on monthly or other catch limits and will, wherever possible, ensure that any representations are taken into account when setting such limits. However, the MMO must reserve the right to alter catch limits and/ or close fisheries without prior notice or consultation in the event that such actions are necessary and expedient for the regulation of sea fishing.
