Fisheries opportunities and agreements for 2022


In Europe, total allowable catches (TACs) are set for most commercial fish stocks based on scientific advice on the stock status from ICES and other independent advisory marine research bodies.

In the EU, TACs  are set in agreement with with non-EU countries for stocks that are shared and jointly managed. TACs are then divided between EU countries in the form of national quotas. In UK, Norway, Iceland and Faroe Islands, TACs and quotas are decided nationally by the respective governments.
