The Pelagic Landing Obligation (with effect from 1 January 2015)

If you are targeting pelagic species which are subject to quota, the Pelagic Landing Obligation will apply to you and all the catch quota species you catch.

Guidance on how to follow the Pelagic Landing Obligation rules may be found at gov.uk (external link).
