National Steering Group

Our Clean Catch UK National Steering Group is made up of policy makers, fishing industry members, scientists and NGOs from around the UK, whose combined knowledge provides the strategic direction for our work on wildlife bycatch. Members of the Steering Group provide advice and information on the latest research and policy efforts to reduce bycatch in UK fisheries.

 


 

The National Steering Group meets up to four times per year and issues formal Recommendations to Defra on the findings of the Clean Catch UK programme, on a ‘consensus’ or ‘majority/minority’ basis.
