The IFCA Vision

Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authorities will 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.

Who We Are

Southern IFCA covers the inshore waters of Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight out to 6 nautical miles. We work both on land and at sea to balance sustainable fisheries with a sustainable environment.


The District contains a diverse range of habitats and species within European Marine Sites and Marine Conservation Zones and our evidence collection ranges from impact surveys to habitat mapping and underwater video footage.


Land and sea patrols monitor compliance with EU, national and local fisheries legislation and officers' conduct landing inspections and inspections at sea, as well as premises checks, often in close liaison with partner agencies


Southern IFCA aim to be seen and heard by routinely engaging with stakeholders, local organisations and the wider public through open meetings, lectures, presentations and attendance at local open days.
