NFFO chief warns of threats to fishing industry

PAUL Trebilcock, of the National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations, has spoken of the threat the industry faces from 'the whim of politicians, media distortions, the swivel-eyed end of the environmental movement and the bureaucracy in Brussels'.

He made the comments in his report to the NFFO's AGM in London on 7 May, as his final duty as chairman before being elected as NFFO president.

Trebilcock's report covered topics including Trends in Fishing Mortality, Common Fisheries Policy, fleet diversity, the Scottish independence referendum, lifejackets, logbooks, shellfish and the under 10-metre fleet.

The report can be read in full here.

UK fishing industry trials look at how a discards ban may work in practice Course, Senior Marine Trials Officer at the Marine Management Organisation, writes about how trials are looking at how a fish discards ban may work.

Fisheries Minister George Eustice recently said that the UK is: “committed to further extension of catch quota schemes as part of transition to CFP reform”. These schemes, involving the UK fishing industry and the Marine Management Organisation (MMO), are showing that there is a viable alternative to discards, ensuring a sustainable future for both our fish stocks and our fishing fleet.


Consultation workshops

DEFRA is holding a series of workshops around England to raise awareness of public consultations concerning the implementation of reforms – such as the discard ban – which are due to be part of the new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and to discuss the proposals with the industry.

Seafish would like to invite industry to attend these events, which are taking place in Hastings, Mevagissey, Grimsby, Newlyn and Brixham between April 30 and May 8.



A TEAM of researchers at Plymouth University is currently consulting fishermen in an attempt to formulate schemes to address rubbish-related issues around the UK's coasts.

By learning more about fishermen's experiences and opinions on the matter, the project hopes to help make things easier for the marine environment, the fishing industry as a whole, local harbour authorities and individual fishermen.


NFFO secures government support for storm hit fishermen, but says more must be done

The National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations (NFFO) has welcomed confirmation by Fisheries Minister, George Eustice, that fishermen affected by the recent extreme weather will have access to the government’s storm relief fund, but says much more needs to be done to support the sector as one of the worst hit industries.


At a crunch meeting last week the minister confirmed fishermen affected would be able to access the £10m Small Business Storm Relief Fund, which although welcome by the NFFO, falls short of its request for specific compensation to help the estimated 4,000 fishermen and 2,000 vessels impacted.
