Fisheries Policy

I met with a group of inshore fishermen at Kelynack Cornish Fish in Mullion.

Over the next few days Fisheries Minister George Eustice MP, will be in Brussels taking part in the annual negotiations that will determine what fish can be caught. I met with George on Thursday to discuss the impact that proposed restrictions will have on West Cornwall fishermen particularly for those who catch bass.

These negotiations are intended to manage fish stocks and ensure we have a sustainable fishing industry. However, fishermen find some decisions perplexing to say the least.
Having met these fishermen I will go back to George with some concerns and ideas that the fishermen have put to me.
