At the end of the implementation period the UK will be an independent Coastal State providing an opportunity to develop a new domestic fishing policy that is more competitive, more profitable and more sustainable – allowing our coastal communities to thrive.

We will have control of our Exclusive Economic Zone (out to 200 nautical miles or the median line with other coastal states). We will be responsible for the management of natural marine resources in this area and will be able to control and manage access to UK waters.
