Assist AB has produced one of the most advanced Quota management systems in
Europe. We have experience from several countries of how quotas are managed.

Background for Quota
management in EU countries
The scientific community
recommends annually allowable total catches for different areas and species.
Based on this the TAC (Total allowable catch) is decided in December for all EU
Countries and published in the Official Journal. The member states can
distribute this quota among the vessels or producer organisations if they choose
to do so.
The member states are free
to decide how to calculate the catch.
To find out what actually
has been landed one can use a mixture of information from different sources
The information source can
also change dependant of the status of the information. In an early stage the
source can be of one kind and later when more information arrives the source can
be of another kind.
The quota uptake is also
reported from the country where the fish is landed. This means that if the fish
is landed in another EU country it is the method of that country that defines
the way the uptake is calculated.
By comparing the way of
quota calculation in different countries such as, Sweden, Denmark, Germany and
others the advantages and disadvantages with different methods can be seen. This
is useful when creating new systems for calculating quotas based on new
Experience in this area
