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.
