Welcome to North Western IFCA

The North Western Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (NWIFCA) was formed in 2011 with a statutory remit to sustainably manage the inshore fisheries and marine environments of the North West of England.

All Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authorities share the same vision “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”.
