WWF Marine Act Campaign –
       top 4 asks
         • Fish don’t do politics –
           conservation zones shouldn’t
           either
         • Who’s the captain? The sea’s
           no place for weak and watery
           management
         • A wide enough net? All of our
           seas are important, not just the
           busy bits
         • Fishing for the future –
           conservation must be the new
           ‘catch’ word.
Process and next steps
        • Process for working with
          Peers, MPs, Defra
        • Movement on key
          issues
          – Duty to designate,
            discussion on ‘ecological
            coherence’
          – Planning for all waters
          – MMO statutory consultee
            of the IPC
Implementation
    • Marine Act just the first
      step!
    • Stakeholder engagement
      will be crucial to success of
      the legislation
    • Implementation processes
      should engage
      stakeholders to ensure
      buy-in and ownership
    • Links to EU legislation
Partnerships in Stakeholder Engagement
 in the Celtic Sea EcoSystem (PISCES)
              • Ecosystem approach is a
                central tenet of EU
                legislation but no legally
                recognised definition
              • WWF UK project with WWF
                Spain and The Environment
                Council (partners in France
                and Ireland)
