THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will be an opportunity to assess next steps for the UK’s fisheries policy.
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 and set fishing quotas for after leaving the EU.
With the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee holding an inquiry into to how fisheries and seafood trading arrangements between the UK and the EU will affect fishers, seafood processors, consumers, coastal communities and the environment, further sessions focus on sustainability, skills and interests across the sectors and areas of the UK involved in fishing, as well as the impact of withdrawing from the London Fisheries Convention.
The agenda also looks at the challenges for developing the institutions and decision-making structures that will need to be set up as the UK leaves the EU.
