Eastern IFCA is a statutory committee which meets quarterly, to receive reports from the Authority’s officers, take decisions on fisheries and conservation management, and to direct officers to conduct work on its behalf to discharge its duties. Eastern IFCA is primarily funded by its three constituent County Councils (Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Suffolk) and it also receives some funding from Defra.
The Authority’s 21 Members comprise: 7 County Councillors from across the constituent Councils; 1 representative each from the MMO, Natural England, and the Environment Agency; 11 individuals appointed by the MMO for their expertise and knowledge of various marine sectors.
