Since lockdown, we have been organising our full programme of conferences online. We will continue online until further notice, to ensure we play our part in helping our employees and delegates to remain safe during this time. We are pleased that so many key stakeholders, policymakers and other interested parties - both old friends and new delegates - are taking up the opportunity to discuss public policy issues and network at our impartial seminars. New events are coming on to our conference programme all the time. So there are plenty of opportunities for you to join us if you haven’t already, from wherever you are.

Fishing and the marine environment

November 2010

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.

Shortly after every Westminster Food & Nutrition Forum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
