Annex III.B to the CEM referred to in Article 14(2) and (3) of Regulation (EU) 2019/833

Authorised Topside Chafers/Shrimp Toggle Chains

(1)   ICNAF-type topside chafer

The ICNAF-type topside chafer is a rectangular piece of netting to be attached to the upper side of the codend of the trawl net to reduce and prevent damage so long as such netting conforms to the following conditions:

(a)

this netting shall have a mesh size not less than that specified for the codend in Article 13;

(b)

this netting may be fastened to the codend only along the forward and lateral edges of the netting and at no other place in it, and shall be fastened in such a manner that it extends forward of the splitting strap no more than four meshes and ends not less than four meshes in front of the cod line mesh; where a splitting strap is not used, the netting shall not extend to more than one-third of the codend measured from not less than four meshes in front of the cod line mesh;

(c)

the width of this netting shall be at least one and a half times the width of the area of the codend which is covered, such widths to be measured at right angles to the long axis of the codend.

Image 1

(2)   Multiple flap-type topside chafer

The multiple flap-type topside chafer is defined as pieces of netting having in all their parts meshes the size of which is not less than that of the codend, provided that:

(a)

each piece of netting

is fastened a minimum of one meter apart by its leading edge across the codend at right angles to its long axis;

does not overlap the leading edge of the next piece of netting (see illustration following this provision);

is of a width of at least the width of the codend (such width being measured at right angles to the long axis of the codend at the point of attachment); and

is constructed of a positively buoyant single twine material; and

(b)

the aggregate length of all the pieces of netting so attached does not exceed two-thirds of the length of the codend.

(3)   Shrimp Trawl – Codend Strengthening Bag, for vessels directing for shrimp in the NRA

A strengthening bag is defined as an outer covering of netting that can be used on a shrimp trawl to protect and provide strength to the codend of the shrimp trawl.

(a)

Vessels shall not use a strengthening bag of which the mesh size is less than 130 millimetres.

(b)

The strengthening bag shall not extend forward of the sorting grids or grates or obstruct the sorting grids or grates in any way.

(c)

A strengthening bag shall not be attached in any way that restricts the authorized mesh or obstructs the mesh opening.

(d)

Vessels shall not use a strengthening bag with any other top-side chafers simultaneously.

Shrimp Toggle Chains

Toggle chains are chains, ropes, or a combination of both, which attach the footrope to the fishing line or bolchline at varying intervals.

The terms “fishing line” and “bolchline” are interchangeable. Some vessels use one line only; others use both a fishing line and a bolchline as shown in the sketch.

The toggle chain length should be measured from the centre of the chain or wire running through the footrope (centre of footrope) to the underside of the fishing line.

The attached sketch shows how to measure the toggle and chain length.

Data Exchange Format and Protocols

A.   Data transmission format

Each data transmission is structured as follows:

(1)

Data characters in accordance with ISO 8859.1

(2)

Each data transmission is structured as follows:

double slash (“//”) and the characters “SR” indicate the start of a message;

a double slash (“//”) and field code indicate the start of a data element;

a single slash (“/”) separates the field code and the data;

pairs of data are separated by space;

the characters “ER” and a double slash (“//”) at the end indicates the end of a record.

B.   Data exchange protocols

Authorized data exchange protocols for electronic transmission of reports and messages between Contracting Parties and the Secretary shall be in accordance with Annex II.B, Rules on Confidentiality.

(6)  Cancel report should not be used to cancel other Cancel report.

(7)  If the report is not sent from a vessel the time will be from the FMC and be the same as RD, RT.
