Consultation on the introduction of catch recording for licensed fishing vessels under 10 metres in length





The MMO are seeking views on the potential business impacts linked to the introduction of catch recording for all English and Welsh licensed fishing boats under 10 metres in length.

Why We Are Consulting

We want to know your views on how the introduction of catch recording requirements for under 10 metre vessels registered in England or Wales could potentially affect you and your business.

The change in the licence condition will apply to all English and Welsh licensed fishing vessels under 10 metres in length. Scottish licensed vessels already have a licence condition that mandates recording for the under 10 metre fleet and Northern Ireland will be seeking consultation responses at a later date.

The consultation is open to everyone. It will be of particular interest to owners and operators of licensed fishing boats under 10 metres in length licensed in England and Wales.
