Statutory guidance

Manage your fishing effort: Cod Recovery Zone 2017

The commission have recognised that the Cod Recovery Scheme is not compatible with the landing obligation. Therefore there will be no need to apply for days at sea to fish in the Cod Recovery Zone this year 2017. If you are eligible to fish in the area you should have received a Fishing Authorisation dated 20 December 2016 which will permit you to be active in the zones. If you have a historical track record of fishing in the area but have not received a Fishing Authorisation please contact the MMO.
