Marine Management Organisation
In 2017 the European Commission granted the UK and other member states quota for undulate ray in specific areas.
The UK has 2 tonnes of remaining quota for ICES area VIId which can be used for scientific research.
Currently undulate ray caught in VIId is under restrictive management and vessels involved in the survey will be required to complete a log-sheet and follow certain conditions while operating under dispensation.
It is anticipated that participating vessels will be restricted to 100kg live weight per trip but this will depend on the number of vessels that take part. Approximately 6 vessels that collectively fish across the range of area VIId are required.
If you would like to be considered to take part please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0208 2 256947 by 8am on the 13 November 2017.
