Create and submit catch records for all English and Welsh under 10 metre (U10m) flag vessels that fish in UK waters.

The MMO are currently looking to trial catch recording for the Under 10m fleet. Here's what they say on their website:



Create and submit catch records for all English and Welsh under 10 metre (U10m) flag vessels that fish in UK waters.




(Please note this is a phased introduction and the service is being tested with invited fishers only.)

Overview


Use this service to create and submit catch records for all English and Welsh under 10 metre (U10m) flag vessels that fish in UK waters.

You can use this service if you are a:


  • vessel owner
  • skipper

If you are a member of a producer organisation you should not use the online record your catch service and should continue to record your catch using a paper logbook.

All U10m flag vessels need to record their catch. The information is used to help UK fishing authorities manage fishing levels in a sustainable way.


This service replaces:



  • the NEP1 form
  • the MSAR1 form, however, depending on your location, local IFCAs may require additional information
  • the requirement to complete a log book when leasing fish quota and/or when fishing in 2 ICES areas (currently IV4/VIId and VIId/VIIe)

How to get an invite and register


How to get an invited
Vessel owners:You should receive an invite email. When you receive the invite email depends on your vessel size. You have one calendar month after receiving the email to register and start to use the service.
Skippers:To get an invite email contact the owner of the vessel you work on.

How to register

Vessel ownersWhen you register you’ll be asked to add the ports and gear you normally use and the species you catch for each of your vessels.

Adding this information before your trip makes it quicker to create a catch record. You’ll only need to do this once and you can change it in the future.


You can also add skippers to create catch records on your behalf.

When you register you’ll be asked for your address and contact number.

What to record



  • You must create a catch record for everything you catch on every fishing trip, even if you only catch one fish or shellfish.
  • You’ll be asked for information about your trip and give estimates of the live weight of what you’ve caught. Your estimates must be within 10% of the actual weights in your sales note.
  • Landed weights can be converted to live weights by multiplying them by a conversion factor.
  • If you catch species with catch limits (quota) all sizes of fish must be recorded unless exemptions apply.
  • You’ll be also asked for the area, the statistical sub rectangle, where the majority of your catch was caught.

When to record your catch


  • If you catch species subject to quotas or catch limits
  • You must create a catch record before you move your catch off the boat
  • If you catch species not subject to quotas or catch limits
  • You must create a catch record within 24 hours of landing your catch.
  • If you catch a mixture of species subject to quotas or catch limits and species not subject to quotas or catch limits
  • You must create a catch record before you move your catch off the boat.
  • If on the same trip you fish, or are present, in ICES area 4c and 7d, or 7d and 7e


You must create a catch record each time you cross the ICES boundary between these areas. You will need to use the apple or android app to create your catch record offline.

If you cross an ICES area while fishing


You must create a separate catch record for each ICES Area you have fished in. These must be created before you move your catch off the boat if you are catching quota species or species with catch limits, or within 24 hours of landing if you are catching only species not subject to quotas or catch limits. If you catch a mixture of species subject to quotas or catch limits and species not subject to quotas or catch limits, you must create the catch records before you move your catch off the boat.
