About the consultation
There are increasing pressures being placed on our natural marine resources and a growing recognition that coastlines should be managed in a planned and sustainable way. There are many competing interests for the use of Jersey's marine resources including:
- renewable energy
- recreational boating
- commercial and recreational fishing
- kayaking and surfing
In order for all interests to be balanced in a fair way, the Economic Development and Environment departments have produced the Marine Resources Strategy.
Strategy to safeguard marine resources
It sets out 45 recommendations for the long-term safeguarding Jersey's marine resources, while supporting the Island's commercial and leisure users. The proposals aim to promote more productive, sustainable and better managed marine-based industries so they can continue to grow and provide employment. The strategy aims to:
- ensure long-term protection of the marine resource within Jersey’s territorial sea
- support the sustainable development of Jersey’s fishing and aquaculture industries
- promote fair access to (and use of) the marine resource by a diverse range of interests
