Closed – Consultation: Seeking evidence to help inform the development of a new approach for the allocation of additional fishing quota in England after Brexit.

Closes 11:45pm on 30 August 2019

Defra is seeking evidence to help develop a new approach for allocating any additional English fishing quota secured during negotiations following Brexit. In particular, they want to hear from the fishing industry and others in England and the Crown Dependencies, on issues such as:

  • establishing a reserve of quota
  • improving how the discard ban works in practise
  • allocating fishing opportunities through a tendering or auctioning system
  • how to redefine the ‘under 10 metre’ category
  • trialling an effort (days at sea) regime instead of a quota regime for inshore fisheries
  • how to make sure coastal communities benefit from quota
