Notes :

 

1.         Additionally up to 14 000 tonnes or 7 000 tonnes for each country may be harvested for research and management purposes.

2.      Additionally up to 1 000 tonnes of cod may be harvested for research and management purposes by long line

3.      Additionally non-commercial fishery for personal consumption will be allowed.

4.      Additionally up to 5600 tonnes or 2800 tonnes for each country may be harvested for research and management purposes

The TAC means a reduction of roughly 10% percent for the both main players in the fishery.

The cod quota for the Russians has come down by about 9.8% and according to senior officials in Murmansk the fishermen are reasonably happy with the outcome as greater cuts were initially proposed.
