North West Norfolk MP James Wild joins King’s Lynn fishermen for meeting with minister of fisheries
Sustainability, skills, the coast and industries were all things discussed in a meeting between MPs, fishermen and a minister last week.
James Wild, MP for North West Norfolk, and Matt Warman, MP for Boston and Skegness, were joined by fishermen in a meeting with the minister of state for food, farming and fisheries Mark Spencer on November 24, where they discussed the best ways to stay sustainable whilst still supporting the industry.
Among the topics covered were consultation with the fishing industry, the Eastern Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (EIFCA), Norfolk and Suffolk coast, the proposed new fishing by-law, sustainability, and skills.
Mr Wild said: “This was a valuable opportunity for local fishermen to set out concerns they have to ensure a sustainable approach to managing the Wash.
“Fishing is an iconic local industry and it is important to ensure that it continues long into the future.”
