There will be a rare chance to find out about the range of species that can be caught off the coast between the Tweed and the Tyne at a special event next month.

The Northumberland Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (NIFCA) will display the bounty of the sea at its own fish counter at the Northumberland Seafood Centre at Amble. It will take place on Saturday, July 9, from 10.30am until 3.30pm.

It will also give interested members of the public an opportunity to learn more about NIFCA’s work, including the findings of its lobster and mussel surveys and its role in promoting and regulating recreational sea angling.

There will be presentations about the Authority’s work at 10.30am and 2pm and officers will be available to give more information about the Authority and its work.

NIFCA is one of 10 IFCAs around the coast of England. The IFCA Vision is to lead, champion and manage a sustainable marine environment and inshore fisheries, by successfully securing the right balance between social, environmental and economic benefits to ensure healthy seas, sustainable fisheries and a viable industry.
