Information contained in the quota and ACE registers is available to the public in the form of standardised register reports. For information from the vessel and permit registers contact us.

A fee is charged for each report, based on the type of report. A list of fees is available here.

The reports can be viewed on screen, printed or downloaded as a spreadsheet. Some reports are only available as a download due to the amount of information they contain.

All reports on this website are standardised. If you require reports that are customised or contain information that is not in the standardised report, please contact us.

For example for an October stock, the first quarter's total catch will be displayed after balancing on the 16th January. The second quarter on the 16th April and so on.
