The District of the Authority extends six nautical miles seaward from the baselines, from the River Tyne to a point drawn True East from ‘Haile Sand Fort’ on the North East Lincolnshire Authority boundary, close to Humberston, on the South Bank of the Humber Estuary. The District also encompasses all estuarine areas, landward to tidal limits, occurring within the boundaries of member Local Authorities.
To support operational planning and management the NEIFCA district is currently divided into two sectors to the North and South of the River Esk at Whitby, North Yorkshire. Each sector is covered by two Inshore Fisheries & Conservation (IFC) Officers responsible for policing regulations and providing advice and support to stakeholders. The Authority’s main patrol vessel is also located at Whitby which allows 24 hour access to both sectors.
