Regulation No. 213 of 2019 to regulate the harvesting of raud te in 2019.

Type of law

This regulation prohibits Norwegian vessels to fish for and land raud te, a small crustacean, which is a zooplankton that is an important food for fish fry and can be found in the Norwegian fishing zone. In principle fishing and landing for raud te is prohibited but Norwegian vessels may fish and land 254000 tons with a specific trawling licence in specified areas of the Norwegian EEZ, the fisheries zone of Jan mayen (beyond 12 nautical miles from the coast), and international waters in the Norwegian Sea, within an area defined as NEAFC RA 2 (XNS). Specific sampling, reporting and observer arrangements shall be in place for harvesting of raud te. The Directorate of Fisheries can stop harvesting when the total quota or area quota is exhausted.
