Evaluation of the inshore fisheries and conservation authorities REF: 1035
RPA has been commissioned by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to undertake a study to evaluate the activities, operations and actions of Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authorities (IFCAs).
The evaluation will help to inform the future governance and management of the UK fisheries and marine environments and in particular, the structure of IFCAs across the UK. Data will be gathered via interviews and focus groups with national stakeholders, senior IFCA officials and local stakeholders. Further information will be provided in due course.
