Designated Ports, Notification of Landings, Hailing

Under EU and Irish legislation there are requirements to provide prior notification of landings or ‘hailing’. This procedure is in place for both national and foreign vessels. Notifications must be submitted to the competent authority which in Ireland is the Fisheries Monitoring Centre. Contact details for the FMC are available here.

Masters of vessels fitted with ERS that are engaged in fisheries of stocks subject to a multiannual plan must submit a PNO at least 4 hours before landing. These multi annual plan species are listed on Commission website at: http://ec.europa.eu/fisheries/cfp/fishing_rules/multi_annual_plans/index_en.htm. They include Cod in ICES VIa & VIIa and Hake in VI & VII.
Masters of Irish sea-fishing boats must also send a PNO if they intend to land or tranship 150 kilograms or more of monkfish (ANF) lophiidae
.

In addition, certain quantities and species of fish must be landed into designated ports. The table below lists the designated ports in Ireland and the species for which they are designated.
