Supporting a better deal for fishermen: Paul Trebilcock will be attending the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations and the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation’s lobby day on the 10th October.

The aim of the Lobby Day is to demonstrate a united UK-wide fishing industry and highlight collaboration between the NFFO and SFF. We are also seeking to secure support from MPs and Peers to work for the best possible outcomes for the UK fishing industry after we leave the EU and to discuss the Fisheries White Paper and the forthcoming Fisheries Bill.
