Quota allocations

Quota allocations are divided in proportion to the number of fixed quota allocation (FQA) units assigned to licences in each group:

  • the under 10 metre pool
  • non-sector pool
  • producer organisations

Under 10 metre pool units are not associated with vessel licences but are held as a single block by fisheries administrations. However, the amounts assigned to the non-sector and under 10 metre poosl will, if appropriate, be adjusted in line with underpinning arrangements.

Adjusted amounts are then divided up among the fisheries administrations based on:

  • percentage shares in the rules for under 10 metre vessels
  • FQAs for the non-sector
  • FQAs for the sector

Fisheries administrations are responsible for then allocating the amounts of quota provided to them by the UK Government. For more detailed information on how this is calculated please refer to section 2 of the UK quota management rules.
