The results for the OMP variants requested at the previous SWG meeting are reported. These take into account adjusting the amount transferred from A8 to A56 (over and above abundance change related transfers) to be 5% only, allowing the maximum TAC increase constraint to be 11%, and permitting tolerance allowances of 10% for the offshore fishing sector. Results for a further OMP candidate which extends tolerance to the nearshore+interim relief/subsistence sectors (but excluding A8+) is also reported. Note these two OMP variants will result in the same initial TAC values for the 2015 season – the extent to which tolerance during the season is allowed may be the only variable.
