Welcome to the Institute’s Policy Page.

The Institute is working on a number of new position statements and these will be released and circulated in due course. If members have any subjects they feel the Institute should be working on please do get in touch.

Current Position Statements 

We have created a dedicated page for our position statement and further information on the Sustainable Management of Sea bass. This can be found here.

With the rapidly moving nature of the Brexit process we have created a dedicated Brexit page to highlight any developments that may have an impact on Fish and Fisheries. Here you will find our own Brexit position statement as well as other information from the Environmental Policy Forum and others.
