Deemed value rates

Deemed value rates are set by MPI each fishing year for different fish stocks. Download deemed value rates for a particular fishing year.


What the rates mean

If commercial fishers don't have enough annual catch entitlement (ACE) to cover their catch, MPI charges:

  • interim deemed value rates for extra catch during the first 11 months of the fishing year
  • annual deemed value rates for extra catch at the end of the fishing year.

Deemed value rates are set by MPI each fishing year for every fish stock in the Quota Management System.

Deemed value rates

The fishing year starts from February, April or October depending on the fish stock.
