Fishing and the marine environment

November 2010


Price: £95 PLUS VAT
Format: DOWNLOADABLE PDF


As the European Commission moved towards reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) in 2012, this seminar took a broad look at the approaches that the fishing industry and policy makers could take to conserve marine biodiversity for the future, whilst meeting the needs of the fishing industry and consumer demands for a wide range of fish and seafood products on UK shelves and menus. Sessions considered the role of the food and restaurant sectors in conserving fish stocks, including the role of consumer guidance and labelling, and examined whether advice on eating fish as part of a healthy diet is at odds with the need to preserve a healthy marine ecosystem.
Following the publication of the draft UK Marine Policy Statement, described by Defra as "a radical new way of managing our seas", the agenda included an update on moving forward the Marine and Coastal Access Act, as well as developing an effective framework for marine planning to promote sustainable development in the marine area.
