English Cockle Fisheries Management Plan

Defra have commissioned the Association of Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authorities (AIFCA) to develop a draft cockle FMP for English waters. With the support of regional IFCAs, the AIFCA will work with stakeholders to develop a national FMP which will work alongside long-established regional management regimes, placing them within the wider policy framework of the Fisheries Act 2020 and the Joint Fisheries Statement. By doing this, shared objectives that can impact and advance all English cockle fisheries may be identified.

More information will be available on this website soon. If you wish to contact the project in this time, please use the contact us button above.
