What impact will the Landing Obligations have on fishing? - latest Seafish report.


Latest Seafish report by local fisheries expert Nathan De Rozarieux at Tegen Mor Consultants on the impact of the new discards or "Landing Obligation" policy.  The aim of the work is to analyse the impact of the landing obligation in a whole supply chain context, and from financial, legal, operational and market perspectives. This project will:- 

•Map the UK supply chain and identify existing and perceived issues for each sector. •Assess the impact of issues in respect of changes in policy •Discuss potential consequences for each sector; for example, changes in operational behaviour, policy issues, loss of supply or loss of market. •Identify gaps in information and suggest better use of existing information. 

The analyses will be mainly qualitative.
