NUTFA are currently urgently seeking information from Fishermen on a wide variety of issues faced by fishermen, including but not limited to, the following:
NUTFA have a dialogue with Regulators on a variety of current issues, together with those that are likely to affect the fishing industry in the short and long term as we navigate Brexit. To have some hope of policies being drafted effectively, and to have a way of communicating concerns during this transitional process, all fishermen are asked to make contact with NUTFA to put together an informed, detailed, and thorough analysis of the current situation, not only in respect of Covid19 impact, but with regard to fishing concerns generally. Championing best practice and forcing change where necessary, through challenging current and future policy, is the only way forward to ensure a sustainable inshore fishing fleet. We therefore very much welcome contact from all members of the inshore fleet to enable us to collate information, advice fishermen, and bring about change where necessary for the survival of the smaller scale fishermen in coastal communities currently struggling to keep afloat.
