Outside body

North Western Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority


In accordance with the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009, the Authority is tasked with the sustainable management of inshore sea fisheries resources in the area from the Wirral Peninsula to the Duddon Estuary. It is made up of representatives from the constituent local authorities (who provide funding for the Authority through levies raised) along with people from across the different sectors that use or are knowledgeable about the inshore marine area, such as commercial and recreational fishermen, environmental groups and marine researchers, who offer their time voluntarily.


Meetings are held quarterly in March, June, September and December. Agendas and minutes of the meetings may be accessed on the Authority Website
