Seafood 2040 is a strategy for England, developed by representatives of the English seafood sector. However, its development was facilitated by the UK-wide NDPB Seafish, and the industry group included an aquaculture expert from Scotland. Seafood 2040 is a public document and its findings and recommendations are available to all. A member of the Seafood 2040 group has presented the report to the EMFF Programme Monitoring Committee, which includes members from the four Fisheries Administrations and industry bodies from across the UK.
