Promoting marine conservation in Sussex

Dr Peter Jones has been appointed by the Fisheries Minister to represent the interests of the Marine Management Organisation on the newly formed Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (IFCA). The new authority will take over the responsibilities of the Sussex Sea Fisheries District Committee on 1 April 2011. Peter will have a key role to play in balancing the priorities of promoting sustainable and profitable inshore fisheries, and the conservation of marine habitats and species, particularly within the marine conservation zones being established in the seas off Sussex.
