The Sussex Sea Fisheries Committee - SFC (and since April 2011, known as the Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority - IFCA) piloted a multi species fishery methodology in 2010 with its 'Navigating the Future' Inshore Fisheries Sustainability Pilot. Navigating the Future utilised the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) pre-assessment criteria to evaluate the performance of 26 local inshore fisheries. Project Inshore proposes to replicate this model on a nationwide scale for key commercial fisheries operating within the remaining IFCA districts.
