Event description
This event will brief attendees on what the Fisheries Act 2020 and the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement mean for UK fishing.

About this event

The Fisheries Act 2020 and the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement are the two most impactful pieces of legislation for the UK fishing industry in recent years. In this free public briefing session, we will hear from the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and key figures from Defra about the changes the fishing sector can expect to see from this landmark shift.

The event will cover:

  • Implications of the Fisheries Act for UK fishermen, including quota distribution.
  • How the Fisheries Act ties in with the EU-UK Agreement, such as licensing and quota transfers.
  • Future policy, such as the Joint Fisheries Statement and public consultations.
  • Immediate policy changes relevant to UK fishing.

For this event, speakers will be answering a selection of pre-submitted questions from participants, as many as time allows. To submit a question, or for further details, contact us at secretariat@fisheriesappg.org.
