The UK withdrawal from the European Union has resulted in agreement to rebalance fishing opportunities between the UK and the EU.
For some shared stocks the UK will now manage a greater overall proportion of the available fishing opportunities. The increase in quota share between that received when part of the EU management system and the new agreement is termed ‘additional quota’.
The consultation provides detail on the development of additional quota, and the fish stocks affected. We are only looking at the allocation of additional quota. The consultation seeks views on a number of possible uses of this quota.
