    Exclamation FQA allocations published

    http://www.fishnewseu.com/component/...published.html

    A FIXED Quota Allocation (FQA) register was published by the UK Government on December 18, in a bid to provide greater transparency into the division of fish quotas.

    The register will also improve fisheries management by helping the fishing industry to make better use of its quota, which is a publically owned resource.

    FQA units are the main means by which fishing quota is allocated amongst the UK fishing industry. EU countries receive a share of the Total Allowable Catch for each quota fish stock, and within the UK these are largely distributed into what are known as FQA holdings. Each FQA gives the holder access to a share of the quota for particular fish stocks.

    The register was produced between all the UK fisheries administrations, the Marine Management Organisation and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science.

    Fisheries Minister George Eustice said: "The Fixed Quota Allocation provides greater transparency for anyone with an interest in our fishing industry by allowing them to see who has access to the UK's fishing quota.

    "This will also improve the management of our fisheries by allowing the fishing industry to make better use of its quota."

    Kevin Williamson, Head of Statistics and Fisheries Management, for the Marine Management Organisation said: "This increased transparency on who holds access to UK quota is an important step forward both for the fishing industry and for others with an interest in how quota is managed in the UK."

    The FQA (Fixed Quota Allocation) Register is a list of fishing vessel licence and entitlement holders who hold FQA units. Details are given of the FQA units attributable to each licence and entitlement including for the latter those held on PO 'dummy licences' together with the provenance (beneficial holders) of such units.

    In line with the arrangements outlined in the Fisheries Concordat signed by UK ministers in May 2012, fish quotas that the UK receives from EU are first apportioned to each of the four fisheries administrations (FAs) by the UK Government on the basis of the FQA units associated with those licences administered by each FA. Once apportioned, respective FAs have discretion on how they allocate their share of the UK quotas.
