MEP projects have contributed to Blue Marine’s work in Jersey, which hopes to prove that marine protection will support the recovery of marine life and the local fishing community.
MEP have completed two projects to date. Firstly, MEP performed a fisheries review and cost-benefit analysis of implementing a static gear marine park in Jersey. MEP then went on to conduct a feasibility study of a low impact fisheries model in Jersey, to assess the opportunities and constraints of implementing a ‘low impact model’ for Jersey’s commercial fisheries, a part of which incorporates a static gear only Marine Park.
