South East Ports Visits

8th October 2010 in South East

NFFO President Davy Hill and Assistant Chief Executive Dale Rodmell visited ports in the South East on 6th October covering Selsey, Brighton and Hastings.

Discussions addressed concerns over the Balanced Seas project which is widely regarded as downplaying the importance and significance of fishing interests in the MCZ designation process. Under tens, the future of quota management and the increasing importance of representation, given the unprecedented levels of marine policy now or soon to be affecting the sector, were also important subject matters on the agenda.

Further visits to the South East are planned for the next few weeks.
