IOM Conditions and variations

Electronic Daily Queen Scallop Catch Return

The requirement to complete an Electronic Daily Queen Scallop Catch Return has been introduced as a trial to assist in the development of electronic means of data capture to effectively manage the fishery. The trial has been targeted at the queen scallop dredge fishery as this fishery has a small number of participants and occurs over a short period, which makes the trial more manageable. If successful, the Department may consider expanding such measures to other fisheries. Please see the downloadable instructions for further details.

Notification of changes to your IOM licence will be posted on this page on a weekly basis. It is the responsibility of the master and owner to check this information and ensure that vessels are operated in compliance with the latest conditions.

All variations to licences will now be communicated via this website. Usually this will occur on a weekly basis, no later than 1pm every Thursday. However, due to the reactive nature of fisheries management this may not always be possible.  Whilst an alert message will be sent via email and telephone whenever possible, it remains the responsibility of the owner and master to ensure that they are aware of the most up to date information and that the Licence, Conditions, Schedule and Annexe are kept up to date. 

For further information, please contact +44 1624 685857.
