Both events are drop-in and provide an opportunity for industry and wider stakeholder input into the development of the FMPs which have been enshrined under the UK Fisheries Act 2020 as the main tool for reforming national fisheries management following Brexit. FMPs will set out evidence-based policies that will detail how fishing is managed, by stock, fishery or location.
