Tim Smith from the Association of IFCAs held an in-person event at Truckhaven, Carnforth earlier in January to present the draft objectives for the National Cockle Fisheries Management Plan.

It was an opportunity for stakeholders to discuss the plan’s objectives and their potential implications during this consultation period. Stakeholders feedback will be reported back to Defra to assist with development of the plan.

Tim is continuing to tour England to discuss the National Cockle Fisheries Management Plan.
