Displacement of fishing effort from Marine Protected Areas (NECR241)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

The number of management measures in Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in England that affect the fishing sector is expected to increase in the coming years and unless managed, the resulting displacement of fishing effort could have knock-on impacts on the marine environment, on fishers and on other marine sectors.

Natural England commissioned this report to help better understand the nature and impacts of any potential displacement and the findings will be used by Natural England and other partners to support the design, implementation and monitoring of management measures in MPAs.
