Following Brexit, the UK Fisheries Act 2020 placed FMPs as the main tool for reforming UK fisheries management. FMPs are evidence-based action plans, developed with input from industry and other stakeholders. They set out a range of policies, based on scientific evidence, that detail how fishing is managed, by stock, fishery, or location.
This Fisheries Management and Innovation Group online, bite size session will take a close look at the FMPs being prioritised for delivery in 2023 in England and Wales (Scotland and Northern Ireland have a different approach). These ‘frontrunner’ FMPs, all involve a partnership between fishers, researchers and regulators, but they are piloting different ways of preparing FMPs. The lessons learnt from these projects will help shape future FMP work. Through a series of presentations, and follow-on discussion, we will find out more about how the alternative approaches are working.
