Purpose of the consultation

The Climate Change, Environment and Rural Affairs Committee is carrying out an inquiry into the impact of Brexit on fisheries in Wales.  Please tell us what you think in response to the following questions.  Please feel free to address any other issues in your response:

  • To what extent do current Welsh fisheries policies and wider management measures deliver desired outcomes?
  • What outcomes and policies does Wales want to see from the UK Fisheries Bill? How can policy best reflect the needs of different sectors, including the fishing industry, aquaculture and coastal communities?
  • What are the main challenges and opportunities for fisheries during the transition period and post-Brexit?
  • How effective is the Welsh Government’s engagement with the UK Government on fisheries? Are Welsh interests being given sufficient consideration within the Brexit negotiations?

Please tell us what you think about these issues by emailing us at We ask that all contributions reach us before 18 June 2018. After this date, the Committee will consider the responses and decide how to take the inquiry forward.
