HB Grandi´s quotas for the 2017/18 quota year

HB Grandi‘s fleet has received quotas for a new quota year with the total of 35,620  cod-equivalent tonnes, and 46,100 tonnes in individual species. This accounts for 9.5% of the overall Icelandic quota.

These figures can all be found in the Directorate of Fisheries’ allocation for the 2017-18 quota year. These allocations include only groundfish and Icelandic summer-spawning herring that are allocated within the quota year.

Quotas for shared stocks such as Atlanto-Scandian herring, mackerel, blue whiting, capelin and deep-sea redfish are allocated separately, as are allocations for the Barents Sea cod.

The table shows the allocations to HB Grandi for the 2017/18 quota year, compared to previous year:
