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 multi-annual plan must submit a Prior Notice of Landing (PNOL) at least four hours before landing. These multi-annual plan species are listed on the European Commission website. These include cod in ICES VIa & VIIa and hake in VI & VII.
Masters of Irish sea-fishing boats must also send a PNOL 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.
