MMO restarting coastal operations to support fishing industry

The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) has restarted quayside and sea-based coastal operations to further support the fishing industry through Covid-19.

In preparation for the easing of lockdown, MMO locally-based teams have been returning to their usual duties on shore and at sea, following rigorous training in ‘Covid-19 secure’ operational practices over the past three weeks.

Much of the English fishing fleet is now back in operation, and in response to this increased activity, MMO’s presence and activity in ports, fish quays and markets in coastal areas, and inspections at sea, will provide further reassurance of a level playing field for the industry.
