Opportunities for the Fishing Industry

George Eustice recently met with fishermen and local Conservative candidate Derek Thomas at Newlyn, to discuss the future of the fishing industry.

The Conservative manifesto is clear that a new Conservative government will work with the fishing industry to introduce a new regime for commercial fishing that will preserve and increase fish stocks and help ensure prosperity for a new generation of fishermen. It also states that we will withdraw from the London Fisheries Convention.

George Eustice said "We have got a fantastic opportunity for our fishing industry and it is good news that we will be withdrawing from the London Fisheries Convention. We have an opportunity to ensure our fishermen get a fairer share of quotas, to look at the issue of access, and to deliver more sustainable fishing policies."
