Seafish Industry Authority SFIA - Project Dates:
May 2020 - September 2020
Description of Project:
Seafood 2040 (SF2040) is an England-only strategic and collaborative two-year project facilitated by Seafish in partnership with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and seafood industry partners. Part of this strategy was the development of a realistic, action-oriented and forward-thinking English Aquaculture Strategy for the next 20 years, with Government supported growth targets and a short, medium- and long-term delivery plan.
Poseidon prepared the English Aquaculture Strategy and Delivery Plan. Involving extensive stakeholder consultation, this action-oriented and forward-looking document presented a series of growth targets for the next 20 years, outlined a short-, medium- and long-term delivery plan, to enable the industry to realise its sustainable growth potential, encourage a strong government mandate and increase attractiveness to private investors and has helped energise a strong political mandate and support for sustainable growth in English aquaculture.
