N2K In-shore Fisheries briefing 5 

Managing European Marine Sites is the fifth in a series of IEEP briefings,1 examining key provisions of  EU nature conservation policy set out in the habitats and birds Directives, and how these relate to the UK inshore fishing sector (ie within 12 nm). It explores the requirements for management of marine Natura 2000 sites, the practicalities of setting up and working in a site management group, and the potential role of fishermen and Sea Fisheries Committees.
