Vessels are required to complete the monthly return form.
Those masters of the above vessels already completing an EU logbook as a record of their fishing activity can continue to do so, and will not be required to complete the form, as long as all trips within that month are submitted via the logbook.
Masters of vessels who commence logbook completion during part of the month will be required to submit a MSAR 1 form detailing the catch for the month prior to the date they commence completing the logbook.
The form must be completed daily, and must be submitted to the nearest MMO coastal office no later than the 15 day of the following calendar month. Nil returns are also required.
