From 1st January 2021, the UK will have sole responsibility for the future of our seas and fishing industry.
To help prepare businesses, the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) has produced a series of guides to signpost the steps commercial fishers and seafood exporters may need to take to continue trading.
The ‘one stop shop’ guide for commercial fishers, merchants and exporters covers the administrative side of the fishing industry – signposting to business requirements needed such as for fishing, landing, exporting, importing, transportation, food hygiene and regulatory controls.
Note – some processes will stay the same, such as UK registered vessels landing fish in UK ports, and the regulations that are in place to deter and prevent illegal fishing will not change.
