Revised approach to fishing in European Marine Sites: A status report

This ClientEarth report makes suggestions based on our analysis of the red risk byelaws.  We make recommendations for the next phase of the revised approach to fishing in European Marine Sites in England.

This report considers the first stage of Defra's revised approach and what has been
achieved so far. Areas of concern – where, in our view, byelaws do not sufficiently adhere to
the Habitats Directive requirements – are noted and an overall conclusion of what has been
achieved so far is provided. Difficulties for the next phase of the project are predicted and
recommendations are made, which will help to ensure that compliant protection for all
European Marine Sites from all potentially damaging fishing is delivered by December 2016.
