Statutory guidance

Designated ports

The UK has designated ports where landings of certain multi-annual plan or recovery stocks, and catches of all deep sea species over 100 kg, may be made.



Designated ports must also be used if required by UK licence conditions. Landings of cod or hake over 2 tonnes must be made into designated ports.

More information on the ports and landing arrangements can be found in your vessel licence conditions.
