Fishing quota - additional allocation from 2024: consultation - business and regulatory impact assessment

Business and regulatory impact assessment to assess the impacts associated with the allocation of additional quota.

10. Consumer Assessment

The overall catch of fish associated with distribution of AQ will not change and therefore there should be no impact upon availability to consumers. Anecdotal evidence suggests that non-sector vessels have a greater penetration into local markets, selling directly to hospitality businesses at a small scale. We would expect greater allocations to enable further activity in this area, however, due to the lack of available data on onward sales, this has not been quantified.
