Recommendations for advancing the Joint Fisheries Statement

Professor Paul Kemp and Gowshika Subbiah

This brief was prepared by academics specialising in marine fisheries management from across the University of Southampton, the University of Lincoln, Dalhousie University, the University of Exeter, the University of York, and the New Economics Foundation London.

It aims to provide a balanced review of the current status of UK marine fisheries in light of significant changes to the UK’s marine fisheries management policy following Brexit and the introduction of the Fisheries Act.

The latter provides that a Joint Fisheries Statement (JFS) should be prepared by the UK fisheries policy authorities for the devolved nations to outline the policy strategy to achieve, or contribute to achieving, the eight fisheries objectives the Act sets out.

Based on extensive reviews of the available evidence, this briefing document was prepared to provide a summary of recommendations that the consortium thinks should be included in the JFS.
