Real-Time Closure (RTC) established by Scotland

The Scottish Government Marine Directorate has established a Real-Time Closure due to a high abundance of cod having been detected through sampling (in line with the North Sea Cod Avoidance Plan).  

The area is closed to all gear types with the exception of pelagic gear (purse seine and trawl).

This closure is valid from 06.07.2024 at 14:25 UTC until 27.07.2024 at 14:25 UTC.
