Additional Quota tonnages achieved through the TCA have now been added to your quota sheets.
Each member needs to be vigilant this year as we are uncertain on how or if any inward swops/transfers there will be and domestically it will be challenging to acquire anything further.

Please be advised that the Provisional figures are now published on your quota sheets, and the banking figures for 2021 have also been added. I am hoping by the end of the week for the Additional Quota figures received through the Brexit negotiations to be added also.
News – Added: 13 January 2021
We are now all aware that the Brexit negotiations were not to say in the least favourable for the UK demersal fleet. With this in mind and with the serious problems with the new Rules and Regulations for exporting fish to the EU, please liaise closely with your salesmen on what is required for markets. As stated quotas are going to be very tight for 2021 and opportunities to acquire extra fish extremely hard so I urge all members to be very careful in what they land until everyone has a better idea on what their tonnages will be for 2021. The trilateral talks have just started yesterday and will give you a further update when the TAC settings have been agreed.
