The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) has restarted quayside and sea-based coastal operations to further support the fishing industry through Covid-19.

In preparation for the easing of lockdown, MMO locally-based teams have been returning to their usual duties onshore and at sea, following rigorous training in ‘Covid-19 secure’ operational practices over the past three weeks.

Much of the English fishing fleet is now back in operation, and in response to this increased activity, MMO’s presence and activity in ports, fish quays and markets in coastal areas, and inspections at sea will provide further reassurance of a level playing field for the industry.

As the marine manager and independent regulator for the English seas, part of MMO’s role is to support and assure the sustainable harvesting of fish and the protection of the marine environment through compliance with national and international regulations.

During a lockdown, MMO continued its surveillance and intelligence activities to identify potential illegal, unreported or unrecorded fishing and took action where appropriate. Coastal teams also continued to provide support and advice to the industry, guiding fishers to the available practical, financial and welfare support. In addition, MMO, with Defra, (the government’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) secured and rapidly administered a £10m fund to provide financial assistance to fishers and other seafood businesses to help with their fixed costs.
