THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Delegates will consider priorities for trade, tariffs and quotas for the industry, with the Government planning to introduce a Fisheries Bill to control access to the UK’s waters following the withdrawal from the London Fisheries Convention.
With the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee holding an inquiry into how fisheries and seafood trading arrangements between the UK and the EU will affect the fishing industry and others, further sessions focus on sustainability, skills and interests across the sectors and communities of the UK involved in fishing, taking into consideration the latest phase of the discard ban.
Attendees will also discuss the challenges for developing the institutions and decision-making structures that will need to be set up as the UK leaves the EU, as well as for meeting the Government’s target from the 25 Year Environment Plan to achieve ‘good’ environmental status whilst allowing marine industries to prosper.
