We offer advice, information and resources on seafood trade and regulation. Our guides, tools and people can support you with your queries.

We work with the UK seafood industry and with government to help businesses to trade successfully within the UK and overseas. 

Our team of regulation, economic data and international trade experts are well connected in to the seafood industry and Government. Use our resources and contacts below to help with your trade and regulation issues and opportunities. 

Facilitating UK and international seafood trade

We work with government to ensure the needs of the seafood supply chain are understood as new Free Trade Agreements are negotiated. We also help businesses to understand the changing regulations and rules of trading seafood.

We are not the regulators but our goal is to make the complex information easier to understand so businesses can navigate the tariff and non-tariff barriers. We also provide information and advice on regulations for trading in the UK.

Import and export regulations

Go to our sections on importing and exporting seafood to find the latest information on what you need to do if you are trading with the EU. We are currently developing guidance on trading with the rest of the world too.

Trade forums and groups

We run several industry led forums to share information and insight related to overseas trade. More information on this is coming soon.
