As part of the ongoing development of the Channel demersal non-quotas species FMP, MMO will be holding a fresh round of engagements in February
Marine Management Organisation has finalised dates, times and places for its second round of conversations with south coast fishermen about the Channel demersal non-quota species Fisheries Management Plan.
The sessions, both face-to-face and online in February and March, will offer an opportunity for discussion of the draft vision and goals for the plan along with any other FMP matters fishermen want to talk about.
Fishers are urged to check out the MMO calendar and come along to give their views.
This is the second series of meetings to be held with fishermen on the south coast as part of development of the FMP.
In the meantime, a working group with industry representatives and an evidence advisory group have been set up and are working on developing the plan, ahead of a formal consultation later this year. Details on the Channel FMP and working group meetings can be found on the MMO website.
If fishermen have any questions or points to make ahead of the meetings or wish to be included in MMO’s dedicated stakeholder updates, please email at FMP@marinemanagement.org.uk
