Guidance

United Kingdom Single Issuing Authority (UKSIA)

The UKSIA manages UK domestic fishing vessel access to non-UK waters and foreign vessel access to UK waters.

Overview

The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is acting as the UK Single Issuing Authority (UKSIA) to issue fishing vessel licences on behalf of the UK sea fish licensing authorities of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to manage UK fishing vessel access to non-UK waters, and foreign vessel access to UK waters.

The UK is an independent coastal state and vessels from the EU and other coastal states wishing to access UK waters will require a fishing vessel licence issued by the UKSIA.

In addition to their UK licence, UK vessels require external waters licences to fish in waters outside of British Fishery Limits, including waters of the European Union and other coastal states such as Norway and the Faroe Islands, and in the waters of regional fisheries management organisations (RFMOs) to which the UK is a contracting party.

The UK fisheries authorities (Marine Scotland, the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs in Northern Ireland, Welsh Government and the Marine Management Organisation) remain responsible for the administration and management of UK vessel licensing within the UK EEZ.

UK Vessels

From 1 January 2021 vessels have been required to hold an external waters licence to fish outside of ‘British Fishery Limits’ (UK EEZ). Before applying for an external waters licence, please check that the area you intend to operate is outside of British Fishery Limits. View the map. Access for UK vessels to Crown Dependencies (CDs)’ territorial seas is through the relevant CDs who issue these fishing licences.

General Provisions for UK vessels

Applications for external waters licences must include a valid email address to which the licence will be issued and, for vessels 12m and over in length, an International Maritime Organization (IMO) number. Vessels will not be licensed without this information. If you have not notified your Sea Fish Licensing Authority or the SIA of a valid email address, or your email address has changed, you must send this to your administration port along with your vessel name, RSS number and PLN and we will update our records.

Vessels 12 metres and over in length must have an International Maritime Organization (IMO) number and permanently mark this in a visible place either on the ship’s hull or superstructure. If you do not already have an IMO number, you can apply for free at http://imonumbers.ihs.com. You must notify the UK SIA of your IMO number by emailing it to your administration port along with your vessel name, RSS number and PLN and we will update our records accordingly.

EU waters

Fishing by UK vessels in EU waters is subject to authorisation by the European Commission and requires a valid external licence issued by the UKSIA. The list of UK vessels has been published below with a copy of the licence conditions.

If your vessel is on the list but you have not received a licence please contact the UKSIA via the email address in the ‘Contact the SIA’ section on this page.

If you intend to operate outside of British Fishery Limits and wish to apply for an external waters licence, please complete the application form and submit to the SIA via the email address in the ‘Contact the SIA’ section on this page.

Access to Republic of Ireland 0-6nm

Northern Irish vessels are only permitted to access waters within 0 and 6 nautical miles of the territorial sea adjacent to the Republic of Ireland if expressly authorised at Part 1 section 3 of their UK external waters licence.

Access to UK and EU 6-12nm waters

Under Annex 38 to the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (the ‘TCA’), during the adjustment period the UK and EU have rights of access for fishing in specific parts of each other’s waters between 6 and 12 nautical miles from baselines in ICES divisions 4c and 7d-g for qualifying vessels. Access is to fish in the zones and for the species specified in the table below. A qualifying vessel is one that fished for those species in the appropriate zone, in at least 4 of the 5 years between 2012 and 2016, or its direct replacement.

Access to UK waters for EU vessels

Evidence of qualification must include positional data showing fishing activity in the relevant UK 6-12nm zone with corresponding catch data recording catches of any of the permitted species for that zone (see table below). The catch data must be provided for the same date/time period as the positional data. This evidence must be provided for at least one day in each of four years out the five years between 2012 and 2016.

The UK will consider a range of evidence sources in its decision as to whether a vessel is a qualifying vessel:

Positional data

For vessels equipped with vessel monitoring systems (VMS) this type of data must be provided showing fishing activity within the relevant zone in all four years.

Vessels under-12 metres in overall length that were not equipped with VMS during the period but had an automatic identification system (AIS) installed must provide AIS data where VMS is not available.

Vessels under-12 metres which were not equipped with VMS or AIS throughout the period must provide chartplotter data clearly demonstrating the date/position/speed of the vessel, where VMS and AIS data are not available.

Where available, official sightings data at a position defined by latitude and longitude of fishing activity within the relevant zone of UK 6-12nm waters will also be considered.

All under-12m vessels must provide positional data (VMS, AIS, chartplotter or official sightings) for at least two out of the required four years. For the remaining years they must provide alternative evidence (see next section).

Alternative evidence

Vessels under-12 metres in overall length which do not have VMS, AIS or chartplotter or offical sightings data may provide alternative evidence of fishing activity within the relevant area, for up to two out of the required four years. This may be officially recognised scientific survey data such as Valpena data for French vessels (but only in relation to Valpena rectangles of which at least 50% is in the relevant zone of UK waters) or equally reliable and specific scientific survey data for vessels from other EU member States.

Again, this alternative evidence must correspond to the same date/time period as the catch data.

Where positional data is available which contradicts the alternative evidence supplied, that data will take precedence over the alternative evidence.

Catch data

Catch data must be provided from statutory returns including logbooks or, where appropriate, sales note data.

The catch data must record the permitted species for the relevant zone as indicated in the table below.

Catch data cannot be considered as evidence of qualifying activity on its own. For example, catch data recorded by ICES rectangle must be supported with positional data indicating that the catching activity was specifically carried out within that part of the ICES rectangle in the relevant zone of UK 6-12nm waters (see previous sections on positional data and alternative evidence).

Direct Replacements

Annex 38 of the TCA states that access to the relevant part of the UK and EU 6-12nm zone is granted for qualifying vessels, which includes direct replacements of the original qualifying vessels. The UK’s approach to licensing direct replacement vessels is based on ensuring that a replacement vessel is the same or similar to the original qualifying vessel it is replacing. This approach maintains the stability of the fisheries and also provides a limited but necessary degree of flexibility, while ensuring that no additional capacity is added to the fisheries beyond the level in place during the reference period 2012-2016.

The principles for the UK’s approach to direct replacements are outlined below:

  1. A global ceiling on vessel numbers, gross tonnage (GT) and engine power (kW) is established for each relevant member state of the EU, based on the qualifying vessels as at the end of the reference period (2012-2016). Replacements will not be authorised if they result in the ceiling being exceeded, even if they are within the limits on individual increases set out below.
  2. Replacements are made on a one for one basis.
  3. Replacements may only be made once a year, except in exceptional circumstances.
  4. A replacement vessel may only increase in capacity by up to 10% in kW and 20% in GT compared to the original qualifying vessel it is replacing.
  5. Any increase in kW or GT on replacement is always assessed by reference to the original qualifying vessel, not a previous replacement vessel.
  6. The replacement vessel must be of the same metier (gear type) as the original qualifying vessel. The metier groups are:
  • Static/passive gear.
  • Trawlers.
  • Dredgers
  • Demersal seine-netters.

There are two exceptions to principles four and six above:

a) Small vessels: where both the original qualifying vessel and the replacement vessel are under 12 metres in length and do not exceed 221kW, the vessels are not required to be of the same metier (gear type) and the restrictions on individual capacity increases do not apply.

b) Vessels replaced during the reference period or between 2017 and 2020 (i.e. before the TCA first applied): if the original qualifying vessel and the replacement vessel have a proven ownership link, or a proven direct capacity link stated in a “permis de mise en exploitation” (PME) for French vessels, a greater individual capacity increase of up to 40% in kW and 70% in GT is permitted. This is only permitted once and will not apply to any subsequent replacement of the qualifying vessel.

Licensing

Applications with supporting evidence for qualifying vessels are submitted to the UKSIA by the European Commission on behalf of a vessel’s flag member state.

The UK will assess applications and, in addition to the evidence provided, may use additional data sources including commercially available data in its evaluation. This includes AIS data which is commercially available.

EU vessel owners must direct enquiries regarding their applications and evidence to their national fisheries authority.

Crown Dependencies

Access of EU vessels to the territorial sea around the Crown Dependencies

The Crown Dependencies are the Bailiwick of Guernsey (Guernsey, Alderney and Sark) (“Guernsey”), the Bailiwick of Jersey (“Jersey”) and the Isle of Man.

Under article 502 of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) between the United Kingdom and the European Union, the EU and the UK on behalf of each of Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man, have granted each other access to certain parts of their territorial seas.

This access reflects the actual extent and nature of fishing activity that it can be demonstrated was carried out by qualifying vessels from 1 February 2017 to 31 January 2020 (the reference period), under the treaty arrangements which were then in force (the former London Fisheries Convention and the former Granville Bay Agreement). A qualifying EU vessel is one which can demonstrate that it fished in the territorial sea around the relevant Crown Dependency on at least 11 days in any of the 12-month periods ending on 31 January 2018, 31 January 2019 or 31 January 2020.

Implementation by Guernsey and Jersey

Guernsey implemented access to relevant waters in two stages. Following initial interim arrangements during 2021, in most cases licences to fish in those waters took effect from 1st February 2022. Then, from 1st February 2023, conditions were added to licences to reflect the limits set by the TCA on the extent and nature of fishing.

The arrangements Guernsey have put in place to implement this access can be found on their government’s website at https://www.gov.gg/fishing. They include arrangements for licensing replacement vessels.

Similarly, Jersey also implemented access to relevant waters in two stages. In most cases licences were issued to EU vessels in 2021. Then, from 1st February 2023, further conditions were added to licences to reflect the limits set by the TCA on the extent and nature of fishing.

The arrangements Jersey have put in place to implement this access can be found on their government’s website at Fishing boat licensing (gov.je).They include arrangements for licensing replacement vessels.

Licensing of EU vessels by the Crown Dependencies

The Crown Dependencies are responsible for authorisation and licensing of fishing vessels within their waters. Applications for EU vessels to fish in the waters around a Crown Dependency are submitted by the European Commission to the UK Single Issuing Authority (SIA) on behalf of EU Member States. The SIA operates as a single point of contact between the Crown Dependencies and the European Commission for the purposes of exchanging information for licensing and authorisations.

Applications are forwarded to the relevant Crown Dependency and where an application is approved, that Crown Dependency will issue a licence directly to the owner of the relevant EU vessel by email. The Crown Dependencies may charge a fee for fishing vessel licences. If any of the details in the licence that you receive are incorrect, you should inform your flag State fisheries authority immediately.

EU vessels licensed by Guernsey

The EU vessels listed below are licensed by Guernsey to fish in the relevant waters around Guernsey (in line with the TCA).

These licences are subject to licence conditions. The template conditions can be found on the Government of Guernsey’s website. Additional access conditions may also be included in the licences of specific vessels in order to reflect the TCA.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are aware of the licence conditions and any variations made to them.

Further details and applicable legislation are available at https://www.gov.gg/fishing.

EU vessels licensed by Jersey

The EU vessels listed below are licensed by Jersey to fish in the relevant waters around Jersey (in line with the TCA).

These licences are subject to licence conditions. The template conditions can be found on the Government of Jersey website . Additional access conditions may also be included in the licences of specific vessels in order to reflect the TCA.

It is your responsibility to ensure you are aware of the licence conditions and any variations made to them.

Isle of Man

Information on foreign vessel licensing in Isle of Man territorial waters can be found here. To date the European Commission has not put forward any vessels for access to Isle of Man waters under the TCA and therefore there are no specific arrangements in place for access. The arrangements put in place by Guernsey and Jersey do not prejudice the right of the Isle of Man make their own arrangements for implementation in the future.

Devolved Administrations

The UK fisheries authorities (Marine Scotland, the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs in Northern Ireland, Welsh Government and the Marine Management Organisation) remain responsible for the administration and management of UK vessel licensing within the UK EEZ.

Compliance and legislation

At 11pm on 31 December 2020 the majority of European Union fisheries legislation was retained as UK law and continues to apply to UK fishing vessels and foreign vessels fishing in UK waters (where appropriate). At the same time relevant national fisheries legislation also became applicable to foreign vessels. Fisheries is a devolved matter in the UK and alongside national legislation and retained EU law there are specific regulations that apply in English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish waters. Links to the legislation are below:

The official website for all UK regulations is https://www.legislation.gov.uk/

The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) publishes a non-exhaustive list of fisheries legislation called the ‘Blue Book’.

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/fishing-regulations-the-blue-book

Guidance and legislation applicable in Scottish waters can be found at the following links:
