PAGHAM HARBOUR MCZ AND SPA
Management for both the MCZ and SPA protected features have been developed by Sussex IFCA in close liaison with partner organisations and through public consultation. Formal consultation took place in April 2017 and the byelaw was signed off by the Secretary of State in July 2018.
A pro-active approach to fisheries management within Pagham Harbour is important to maintain sustainable fisheries and a healthy marine environment. As potentially the only near-pristine site within Sussex’s coastal waters, a one-off fishing activity occurrence could have a significant effect on protected features.
