Regulation No. 399 on fishing for sandeels in 2019.

Type of law
Date of original text

The Regulation applies to the fishing sandeels by Norwegian vessels in 2019. It prohibits in principal such fishing, but allows for a catch quota (125 000 tons) which may be caught in the period from 15 April to 23 June in specified areas of the Norwegian EEZ. The Directorate of Fisheries may close the fishery for sandeels when the total quota is caught. The Regulation also concerns (the calculation of) single vessel quotas and provides rules for the use of quotas by single vessels in various circumstances (including special schemes and vessel replacement). The quantity that can be fished with the individual vessel cannot be transferred to another vessel. It is also prohibited to receive and land catches that have been fished by another vessel. If sandeels are intentionally or negligently dumped or otherwise killed, the Directorate of Fisheries' regional office may make a decision on proportionate reduction of the quota.
