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.
