Closes 12 Jan 2018

Opened 6 Dec 2017

Overview

The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is seeking views on draft proposals for potential management of commercial fishing in the part of West of Walney Marine Conservation Zone (MCZ) inshore of 12 nautical miles.

Three management options are being considered and the MMO would like feedback from all interested parties on the proposed management measures.

The MMO would like any information you feel could be relevant to inform our decision for management at this site. In particular we are interested in understanding the following:

  • Do you have information about the location, condition or sensitivity of the designated features?
  • Do you have information about the level or nature of fishing activity in the inshore (0-12 nm) section of the site?
  • How will each of the proposed management options affect you? (Please provide evidence of this impact if possible)
  • What other effects will each of the proposed management options have?

Full details of the proposals can be found via the links below, and contact details for your response can be found to the right.
