The development of Fisheries Management Plans (FMPs) is overhauling the way we do fisheries management in the UK – creating the opportunity for fishermen, scientists and policymakers to work together to develop fisheries research and policy.
With this in mind, we are inviting you to apply for the Fisheries Resource Education Programme (F-REP), focused on sharing key knowledge and building the skills and connections for everyone to work together effectively. Take a look at an example of our South Coast agenda and event sessions.
We are looking for people working in the fishing industry, research, and policy to join us on a three-day residential event.
This is a collaborative event, and financial support is available for participation and to cover time and associated costs.
We believe that co-management – an approach where key groups work together in decision-making – is the best approach to build sustainable fisheries and a prosperous fishing industry.
But the success of co-management depends on having the right conditions for everyone to work together. This workshop will equip you with the skills, connections and confidence to further (or to jumpstart) your participation in fisheries research and management.
