Are you ready for 1 January 2021? Join us to find out how to prepare


We have been listening to our marine and fishing industries and adapting accordingly. While negotiations on any trade agreements continue, there is still much we can all do to prepare for the changes and opportunities ahead as an independent coastal state.

We would like to offer you an opportunity to join Phil Haslam, Operations Director, at the Marine Management Organisation on a video call where we will update you on the latest guidance and information.

The call will be useful for active fishing businesses fishing in both UK or EU waters, fishers who direct land catch into the EU, and merchants and companies that export fish and seafood to the EU. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions or you can send your questions to us in advance to [email protected].

Additional information and support

We have extended our helpline hours and our team in fisheries management to assist businesses preparing for the end of the transition period. This will be further extended from 16 November.

We are also assisting fishers and merchants to meet the required deadlines for data submission and this has had a positive response with improvements so far in many areas.

We have developed a ‘one-stop-shop’ signposting commercial fishers, merchants and exporters to the help and support available as they get ready for the end of the transition period.

You can also sign up for e-mail updates on the government’s website.
