Inland Fisheries Sector - Future Stakeholder Engagement Structure
The Environment Agency Wales, Countryside Council for Wales and Forestry Commission Wales will form into a new single body, called Natural Resource Wales (NRW) from 1 April 2013. This new body will assume responsibility in relation to statutory duties to maintain, develop and improve inland fisheries from the Environment Agency on that date.
As the Environment Agency in Wales will no longer exist, some of the current statutory advisory committees will also cease to exist including the Fisheries, Ecology and Recreational Advisory Committee (FERAC). This Committee also provided stakeholder input to Welsh Government on inland fishery policy matters.
The Welsh Government is determined to ensure that fisheries stakeholder engagement is enhanced and maintained for the benefit of the both the economy and in particular the inland fisheries sector in Wales.
The Welsh Government intends to publish a summary of the responses to this document. We may also publish responses in full. The name/address (or part of the address) of the person/organisation who sent the response are published with the response. This helps show the consultation was carried out properly. If you do not want your name or address published, please tell us in writing when you send your response.
