Fisheries Division

Who we are and what we do

The Fisheries Division of the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture (DEFA) undertakes to manage and protect fisheries and their supporting ecosystems within the Island and its territorial sea.

The Fisheries Division is committed to the protection of the environment and would encourage members of the public to report any suspicious incidents relating to fisheries matters to the department for further investigation email: fisheries@gov.im

Licencing and enforcement are key to the management and protection of our fisheries. Monitoring of fishery stock levels and scientific-data assist our efforts; we also work with the fishing industry, anglers, wildlife and marine conservation groups and other stakeholders.
