Many fishermen are calling for a sustainable approach to fishing and fisheries management, and can see the positive changes that have been made across the industry. Most want to do more, and can see how this could be achieved. They are the original stakeholders – with the most to gain, and the most to to loose – when it comes to the fishing industry.
We take action to enable these fishermen to build a sustainable and prosperous industry from the bottom up. We capture their ideas and harness their passion for the industry to deliver focused projects that tie in closely with our aim: to chart a course towards sustainable and prosperous UK fisheries.
We look to focus our resources very precisely on improving the interactions between key sectors: helping to build trust, find common ground and create innovative solutions. Our work is then delivered through industry collaboration. This means we work with others to provide fishermen with the tools they need to engage fully with fisheries science and management, and to secure a vibrant future for UK fisheries.
The thread of sustainability runs through all that we do – for the sake of the environment, the fishermen and the communities they support.
