The Wash Economic Assessment now available
The Authority commissioned MarFishEco to undertake an economic assessment of the Wash fisheries. The intention of the assessment was to better understand the economic viability of the Wash fisheries and to inform the development of policy to manage access in the Wash cockle and mussel fisheries (the Eligibility Policy). The Eligibility Policy will be the subject of a formal consultation which will be launched shortly.
To find out more about how the report has influenced the development of the Eligibility Policy, please click here.
The assessment can be found here.
Thank you to all those who participated in the survey which informed the assessment and the contributions to the work stream in general.
