Closed Area Byelaw 2020

As part of our programme of work to ensure sensitive sea bed habitats are protected from impacts of fishing, Eastern Inshore Fisheries & Conservation Authority (Eastern IFCA) is proposing new restricted areas off the Lincolnshire coast and within The Wash embayment.

At this stage we are primarily seeking to understand fishing activities in the affected areas, to enable us to effectively assess the costs and benefits of the proposed measures.

This is an opportunity for you to feed into Eastern IFCA’s decision-making process.

The deadline for responses is midday on 11th October 2019.

To find out more about the proposals, please read the summary which is available here. It includes charts and co-ordinates of the proposed management areas.
