Determinations/Fisheries as made
The instrument determines the fishing year as the period starting on 15 April 2015 and ending on 14 April 2016 and for subsequent periods starting on 15 April in a year and ending on 14 April of the following year. This allows the fishing year to commence two weeks earlier to allow the quota to be largely caught before the influx of seabirds.
