Abstract: The 1972/73 winter herring fishery off the south coast began in the week ending 4 November 1972 and ended on 17 February 1973. The total landings at the ports of Dunmore East and Cobh amounted to 109,301 crans which was slightly short of the record catch of 110,816 crans made in the 1970/71 season. This represents an increase of 29,509 crans on the figure for the 1971/72 season. Eighty three boats, the same number as in 1971/72, took part in the fishery and landings were made on 80 days out of a possible 92. The introduction of a quota system which restricted catches for periods before and after Christmas undoubtedly contributed to the total catch being lower than it could have been.
