The SeaFish Industry Authority (SFIA) was established in 1981 to serve the interests of the UK seafish industry. It is regulated by the four Fisheries Administrations in the UK.
Independent reviews of Non-Departmental Public Bodies like SeaFish take place every five years. The Review was produced by Priscilla Russell of the Department for Transport (DfT) and John Martin, an independent consultant recommended by The Scottish Executive Environment and Rural Affairs Department (SEERAD). It was announced in May and involved detailed consultation with stakeholders, SeaFish staff and board members.
