NI Fisheries Management 25 January 2021

DAERA seeks views on the development of fisheries management measures for Marine Protected Areas and establishment of scallop enhancement sites in the Northern Ireland inshore region.

 

DAERA

The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) has launched a consultation on the development of fisheries management measures for Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and establishment of scallop enhancement sites in the Northern Ireland inshore region.

The consultation is aimed at organisations, groups and people who undertake activities, or have a general interest in the marine area.  

Launching the consultation, Minister Edwin Poots said “The Northern Ireland inshore region supports diverse fishing opportunities that make important contributions to the economies of coastal communities. The introduction of changes to fisheries management regimes are intended to support fishing at sustainable levels while protecting the marine environment.”

In the Northern Ireland inshore region, fisheries management measures are proposed for nine MPAs, and the establishment of four scallop enhancement sites.

The closing date for responses to the consultation is 22 February 2021.
