The UK Fisheries Act (2020) stipulates that the management of UK fisheries and the marine environment must minimise the adverse effect of fish and aquaculture activities on climate change. Key to this is the need to mitigate fisheries impacts on national greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and blue carbon.
Our next Fisheries Management and Innovation Group (FMIG) meeting will look at the challenges ahead, and how the UK catching sector can contribute to net-zero targets while continuing to operate sustainably and profitably.

Seafood Issues Groups
The FMIG is one of a number of Seafish-facilitated discussion groups, which focus on the integrity of the seafood supply chain. These groups provide a discussion platform for some of the most important issues facing the seafood industry, particularly in relation to the responsible sourcing of seafood.
People take part to keep-up-to-date with the latest developments, to be part of a cross-industry discussion and listen to the issues raised by other parts of the industry.
