UK Association of Fish Producer Organisations v Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is an action for judicial review brought by producer organisations (POs) against the government in relation to the government's 2012 decision to reduce some of the POs' rights to unused quota (in the form of ‘fixed quota allocation units’) for certain fish stocks and to transfer the quota to the inshore fleet (under 10 metre vessels).

ClientEarth’s senior biodiversity lawyer Sandy Luk has written a short legal analysis of the recent High Court decision on fishing quota allocation between POs and the inshore fleet.
