Cefas Fisheries International Centre of Excellence

Welcome to the Cefas Fisheries International Centre of Excellence.

The Cefas Fisheries International Centre of Excellence supports a fisheries management system that seeks to ensure a sustainable and profitable fishing industry− supplying healthy seafood while effectively safeguarding the marine environment. Through the Centre, Cefas provides fisheries science and advice to ensure stocks are fished sustainably, contributing to management of inshore and offshore fisheries and international fisheries negotiations. Our work is intended to have positive and lasting impacts on fisheries sustainability. We aspire to be the go-to source of advice for successful fisheries management.
