Environment and Research

Overview:

Devon & Severn IFCA’s Environment Team undertake a range of survey, research and analysis activities to support the decision making processes of the Authority. The research answers specific questions and knowledge gaps relating to Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), fishing activity levels, or fisheries stocks. Findings are used to inform management decisions both within the D&S IFCA District and to contribute to national policy decisions.

We also work collaboratively with a range of partner organisations conducting joint projects.
