Chairman's Welcome

The district of Kent and Essex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (KEIFCA) contains some of the most important, productive and intensively used coastal waters in the UK. The diverse array of marine habitats within the district supports numerous marine species. KEIFCA is working with partner organisations and stakeholders to achieve its defined responsibilities relating to sustainable fisheries and the protection of the marine environment. Under the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009, KEIFCA is required to develop systems that will balance the needs of the various users and sectors that work and fish in the district. KEIFCA is working towards reconciling the needs of the present with the requirement to leave a sustainable marine legacy for the future
