Fishery Liaison

Fishery Liaison Services are a key part of any marine development and a core aspect of our work.  Good relations between the developer and the local fishing community are vital to minimise disruption to fishermen and to help projects proceed swiftly and smoothly.

Our Fishery Liaison Service builds good relationships between developer and fishermen, and ensures that project information is readily available to all interested parties.  Updates on all of the projects that we’re working on are posted on this website and sent to our extensive list of stakeholders as part of this service.

The most recent project updates are listed on the right hand side of this page.  Project descriptions, links, and an archive of all of the fishery liaison updates are also listed on the dedicated page for each project (navigate from the “Fishery Liaison” menu above).
