2016 Concordat on fisheries management in the UK

The UK Concordat on Fisheries Management is an agreement between the UK Administrations that sets out a number of arrangements for UK fisheries management, including which UK fishing vessels each Administration will license and how UK quotas are allocated to the four UK countries.

We published this revised Concordat on UK Fisheries Management in December 2016. The Government also issued a letter to stakeholders about the new Concordat in December 2016.

This new agreement makes improvements to the 2012 Concordat on Fisheries Management.
