On the eve of Brexit, with many long terms issues like lack of quota still a running sore, this event will try and fashion a sustainable future for many inshore fishermen. Hopefully the bursaries will encourage a strong participation.
Fishermen from across the UK are being offered funding to support their attendance at the Future of Our Inshore Fisheries conference in London on 8-9 October 2019. The move is part of efforts to ensure strong representation from active fishermen at the event, which will discuss issues around the management of inshore fisheries and aims to establish a blueprint for their future management.
