Regulation 37 of the principal regulations is amended to clarify the requirements relating to the use of statistical area codes on returns.
The notes to Form 1 of Schedule 2 of the principal regulations are amended in order to make provision for the reporting of catch/effort data in teams of the number of fish caught for the specified species.
Part 1 of Schedule 3 of the principal regulations is amended to clarify the correct fishstock codes for scampi.
