Fishing For The Future

This briefing paper explains how new fisheries legislation can establish the UK as a global leader in marine and fisheries management.

As we prepare to leave the EU, the UK and devolved governments have a unique opportunity to develop world-leading, fit-for-purpose policies that protect and enhance our precious ocean resources and build on the good progress that has already been made in some areas. The UK Government has announced that it will start this process with the drafting of new fisheries legislation in this parliament. 

We believe that new UK legislation can create a future where fisheries are managed in line with the protection and enhancement of our seas and support a sustainable, competitive and profitable seafood sector for the benefit of wider society.
