Costs

Producer membership costs US$ 0.40/MT of fishmeal and fish oil produced during the previous calendar year, with a minimum annual fee of US$ 6,600. The rate per tonne is reviewed annually by the management board to ensure costs are covered. Small producers can combine into an association to avoid individually paying the minimum fee.
