    Community Voice Project
    When it comes to safeguarding the marine environment in our district we are seeking to find common ground through engaging with local stakeholders.

    EIFCA staff and Authority members, stakeholders and partner organisations have all played an active part in this project.  We thank those who have contributed and we welcome continued support and participation as we strive to safeguard what we all value – a health marine environment.

    Shrimp management measures
    Eastern IFCA intends to introduce management measures for the protection of sensitive habitats within the marine protected areas of The Wash and North Norfolk Coast.  The development of these measures has included informal consultation with the fishing industry including a workshop held on the 26th September 2016.  The outputs from the workshop will be used to develop proportionate and balanced measures which also protect important habitats.
