Fish Degressive Rate Financial Compensation
The Fish Degressive Rate Financial Compensation scheme is available to officially recognised Producer Organisations (POs).
'Community Withdrawal Prices' for eligible species are set annually by the Commission. To participate in the scheme, POs must adopt and apply Community Withdrawal Prices throughout the year.
If a member of a PO puts fish up for sale for human consumption but cannot find a buyer at or above the pre-set withdrawal price the fish must be permanently withdrawn from the human consumption market and disposed of by an approved method. The PO may then submit a claim for compensation.
Comprehensive lists of Fish Withdrawal prices and information are freely available from the Fish Section should you require them.
