Details

The spreadsheet shows the amount of quota species that has been traded by the MMO on behalf of the English pools of vessels that are not members of Fish Producer Organisations (non-sector pools) and what has been received in return.

A single trade is made up of all the transactions (lines in the table) with the same Trade No. Most trades are made up of number of transactions involving stocks given up and stocks received by the Under-10s or non-sector.

For example Trade No. 2 on 8 March 2017:

The under 10s gave up:

Stock Amount
Cod NS exc IV Norway (COD/2A3AX4) 44.00
Saithe NS (POK/2A34.) 10.00

In return the under 10s received:

Stock Amount
Sole VIId (SOL/07D.) 2.20
Sole VIIe (SOL/07E.) 0.60
Cod VIIb-k exc d (COD/7XAD34) 0.40
Cod VIId (COD/07D.) 0.30
Whiting VIIb-k (WHG/7X7A-C) 1.90
Haddock VIIB-K (HAD/7X7A34) 0.10
Pollack VII (POL/07.)) 2.40
Skates & Rays VIId (SRX/07D.) 0.70

If a trade contains only 1 transaction then this transaction is part of a x-year trade whereby the corresponding transaction took place in 2016 or is pending for 2018. For example Trade 1, the Under 10s received 21t of North Sea Herring in return for stocks that were traded out at the end of 2017.

Details of quota that has been leased into these pools is also provided.

If you require more information on the quota trading process please email the MMO Fisheries Management Team or telephone 0208 0 269 097.

Each month the MMO aims to consult industry on proposed catch limits for the following month.
