Welcome to our website. NIFCA celebrated its 7th Anniversary at the beginning of April 2018, following its establishment under the provisions of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 and inception on 1st April 2011. Throughout that time, our website has continued to develop and undergo enhancements to provide the maximum possible level of information and accessibility to everyone who is interested in our work.

I hope you can find what you are looking for on our website and that you find it to be both interesting and informative.

Please also feel free to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on our recent activity.

Best wishes to all of our stakeholders and anyone with an interest in the work of NIFCA.

Mike Hardy
Chief Executive
