Closed – Consultation – Sustainable Fisheries for Future Generations (Fisheries White Paper)

Closes 12th September 2017

Defra has launched a consultation on the future of fisheries after Britain leaves the European Union. The ‘Fisheries White Paper’ sets out the proposals, some of which will apply to the whole of the UK and some of which will apply to England only.

The Rt Hon Michael Gove MP said “Today we are setting out our plans to promote a more competitive, profitable and sustainable fishing industry across the whole of the UK, and setting a gold standard for sustainable fishing around the world.”
