Live Consultations


Sussex IFCA runs regular consultations with its stakeholders as we develop regulations that protect our fisheries and conservation sites. We also run occasional informal consultations to gather views from the community on a variety of fisheries and conservation matters of interest. During these consultations we are keen to hear the views of all stakeholders so that we can build a good picture of evidence and opinions. If you have any questions about our consultations, then do not hesitate to contact us.

Hand Gathering Byelaw 2021

Notice is hereby given that Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (Sussex IFCA) intends to apply to the Minister for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for confirmation of the Hand Gathering Byelaw 2021.

The Hand Gathering Byelaw 2021 establishes new management for the harvesting of marine fauna and flora from the intertidal zone by hand, or with hand held implements. Hand gathering includes bait collection for angling and the removal of species for human consumption.

To support the statutory consultation process for the Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (Sussex IFCA) Hand Gathering Byelaw, the Authority has arranged opportunities for members of the public to meet with Sussex IFCA Officers, to both discuss the proposed management and look at available information.
