Closed – consultation into conducting a scallop-demersal effort swap with the Netherlands

Closes 20th March, 5 p.m. The Marine Management Organisation is seeking the views of the scalloping sector and wider industry active in ICES area VII regarding a request from the Scallop Industry Consultation Group to exchange 155,000 kW days of ICES area VII scallop effort (from the Netherlands) in return for 465,000 kW days demersal effort (from the UK). UK Fisheries Administrations will make a decision on whether to go ahead with this proposal following this consultation and a cost benefit analysis of the swap to all UK fishing fleets.
