Control and enforcement is a devolved matter. As such, it will continue to be for each devolved administration to decide how best to control its waters, and what new arrangements may be needed.

In England, the Marine Management Organisation has assessed the levels of enforcement capacity required and the options best delivering this. An increase in the number of personnel and surveillance assets relating to fisheries protection will be in place when we leave the EU.
