A talk by Kathryn Nelson of the Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority”
“You may have spotted a low sleek grey vessel sliding quietly through the waters of Chichester Harbour with the words FISHERIES PATROL prominently displayed on the side. This is FPV Watchful and she is operated by the Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority. What is Sussex IFCA and what does it do in addition to fisheries patrols?
Their vision is broad and seeks to achieve a sustainable marine environment and inshore fisheries industry. How is this being achieved? You may be surprised by the wide range of activities carried out by Sussex IFCA, both along the coast and in the more enclosed waters of Chichester Harbour.”
