IOM Conditions and variations
Please note that a trial management arrangement for the newly opened queen scallop areas on Targets and Chickens is being operated by the Manx Fish Producers Organisation (MFPO) on behalf of the Isle of Man Scallop Management Board. This is a voluntary measure, but unmanaged fishing will result in conventional management measures being reintroduced.
Owners, please ensure that your skippers are aware.
For further details and to book access to one of these grounds please contact the MFPO on +44 7624 453938.

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.
