EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order varies the dates during which the prohibition of fishing for scallops under article 3 of the Scallops (Luce Bay) (Prohibition of Fishing) Order 2010 (S.S.I. 2010/375) (“the 2010 Order”) applies.

Article 3 of the 2010 Order prohibits fishing for scallops of the species Pecten maximus in Luce Bay (the area of the prohibition is described in the Schedule to the 2010 Order). The prohibition in article 3 of the 2010 Order has effect from 1st November 2010 and applies to any fishing boat within the area of the Scottish zone described in the Schedule to the 2010 Order.

This Order varies article 1 of the 2010 Order such that the 2010 Order remains in force until the end of 7th December 2010 at which time the prohibition on fishing in article 3 will come to an end.

A person who contravenes the prohibition contained in article 3 of the 2010 Order is guilty of an offence under section 5(1) of the Sea Fish (Conservation) Act 1967. Penalties applicable to the commission of such offences are contained in section 11 of that 1967 Act.

No Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment has been prepared for this instrument.
