Work Package 10 - Policy

Development of Guidelines for Future Fisheries Management and Policy

Guidelines will be produced to cover the future growth of the shellfish industry in the shared Irish Sea. The production of the guidelines for future fisheries management will be applicable to both countries and is a way to ensure that the shellfish sector in this region is environmentally, sustainably and commercially managed over the next 50-100 years. SUSFISH will include economic and environmental assessments to try and ensure shellfish productivity into the future, and to enhance the local businesses involved in the shellfish industry. This will be achieved by assessing the effects of climate change in the Irish Sea and determining adaptation or mitigation strategies for an important marine industry. SUSFISH will contribute to a more cohesive management plan for the Irish Sea and results of the project will have implications for other parts of the world facing similar challenges.
