The National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations has elected its next Chairman.
Fisheries Minister, Robert Goodwill, will address the industry at the NFFO’s annual general meeting in May. The event will also provide an opportunity for members to raise issues from the floor.
The AGM is open to all NFFO members and will be held in Fishmongers Hall, at London Bridge on Wednesday 22nd May 2019 beginning at 10.00am.
Members who wish to attend should register by emailing Joanna@nffo.org.uk or by calling 01904 635430 as Fishmongers require all attendees’ names on a list before the event.
Issues surrounding Brexit and the UK’s future as an independent coastal state, are likely to loom large in the discussions as will the landing obligation, policy towards small scale fleets, the Fisheries Bill etc. But the event is designed to allow grass roots members an opportunity to speak directly to the man who is in charge.
Despite seeing action against Scharnhorst north of Norway and off Normandy on D-Day, absolutely no symbolism should be read into our choice of HMS Belfast for the meeting of our Executive Committee, the day before the AGM. The vessel’s wardroom provides a convenient venue close to Fishmongers Hall, for the AGM the following day
