Sustainable Fisheries for Future Generations

Today’s White Paper, ‘Sustainable Fisheries for Future Generations’, sets out a future UK fisheries policy for when we leave the EU and take back control of our waters.This White Paper outlines the steps that will ensure access to UK waters will be on our terms and to the benefit of UK fishermen, working with the Devolved Administrations to development a new framework for fisheries management. 

As the Environment Secretary has outlined, fisheries will be a separate strand of our future relationship with the EU to the future economic partnership. Through the fisheries strand there will be a separate process whereby the EU and the UK, as an independent coastal state, will negotiate on access to waters and fishing opportunities on an annual basis.
