We work in partnership with many organisations around us. This can be in the form of funded joint projects, having a place on partnership meeting groups or simply coordinating activities with other organisations. You will be able to see this partnership approach throughout our work and this website. Below are descriptions and links to several partnerships.

Europe has funded Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAGs) around our coast. In Sussex we have the Hastings FLAG. Sussex IFCA supports the Hastings FLAG through our participation on its meeting groups. The Hastings FLAG factsheet can be seen here.

The Living Coast is the place where people and nature come together in our world-class environment of Downs, Towns and Coast. We are proud to be a UNESCO World Biosphere Region – our mission is to pioneer a positive future that connects people and nature to inspire a positive future, today. Sussex IFCA has been a part of the project since its early days and has helped shape its marine environment and local fisheries content.

Willd Coast Sussex

Sussex IFCA is working with partners including the Sussex Wildlife Trust, Marine Conservation Society and Brighton Sea Life on a project to inspire Sussex communities to care for the marine environment and enable them to protect their local coast and sea. The project includes net recycling and ghost gear clean up elelments. Read more here.

Catchment Partnerships

The Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) embeds collaborative working at a river catchment scale, including the seas, to deliver cross cutting improvements to our water environments. More than 1500 organisations are engaged with CaBA nationwide including NGOs, Water Companies, Local Authorities, Government Agencies, Landowners, Angling Clubs, Farmer Representative Bodies, Academia and Local Businesses. Sussex IFCA  is part of the Adur & Ouse Catchment Partnership and the Arun & Western Streams Catchment Partnership.
