New Fisheries Bill Introduced

Legislation creating the powers the UK needs to operate as an independent coastal state after leaving the EU was introduced into Parliament on 25 October 2018.

For the first time since 1973, the Fisheries Bill will enable the UK to control who may fish in our waters and on what terms.

The Bill also gives the UK the power to implement new deals negotiated with the EU and with other coastal states and manage fisheries more effectively and sustainably in future.
