Cornwall IFCA is responsible for marine fisheries and environmental management in our inshore waters and estuaries. It was established on 1 April 2011 as a result of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009. The Authority has taken over the duties, responsibilities and assets of Cornwall Sea Fisheries Committee, together with a broader remit for the sustainable management of the inshore marine environment.

Cornwall IFCA will lead, champion and manage a sustainable marine environment and inshore fisheries. It will do this by successfully securing the right balance between social, environmental and economic benefits to ensure healthy seas, sustainable fisheries and a viable future.
