This conference will consider policy priorities for UK fisheries, including next steps for the Fisheries Act, moving on from the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement, ­and prospects for improving sustainability and resilience in the sector.


Delegates will discuss funding priorities for the sector, including priorities for replacing the EU European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and the outlook for the UK’s Shared Prosperity Fund. This will also be an opportunity to look at what is needed for promoting competition, trade and quotas, and priorities for future trade deals.


The conference is also set to examine the way forward for the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) as it supports the UK in becoming an independent coastal state, and latest thinking on environmental practices and stewardship and the future of Marine Protected Areas.

Overall, the agenda is structured to bring out latest thinking on:

  • implementing the Fisheries Act and priorities for enforcement at sea
  • utilising policy and funding developments to support coastal communities
  • the role of UK fisheries in supporting marine conservation
  • working with devolved administrations and other coastal states towards achieving goals
  • the role of market power and consumer demand on driving sustainability


IFM Chairman, David Bunt will be speaking at the conference
