Heritage in the Marine Environment: Sustainable Fisheries for Future Generations

The Heritage Alliance has published a policy paper on heritage and the Marine environment in relation to DEFRA’s Fisheries Bill and other developments in this area after Brexit.

The Fisheries Bill provides an opportunity to address not only fishing heritage but the broader maritime heritage of UK coasts and seas, including some unhelpful attributes of EU environmental regulation in the marine sphere. In particular, the Fisheries Bill presents an opportunity to recalibrate definitions of the marine environment that currently ignore the human, cultural and historic dimension of the seas around us.

The principal request of the Heritage Alliance with respect to the Fisheries Bill is that it defines the marine environment to encompass cultural heritage rather than excluding it.
