Why there has to be a mixed fleet of fishing vessels.

Celebrating the diversity and sustainability of the UK fleet.




This video has been produced as part of the NFFO's ongoing efforts to raise awareness of the growing variety of sustainable species in UK waters and the important strides which have been made by the industry, particularly in the last 10 years, to improve gear and catch methods to in turn boost stock levels. According to the latest ICES (International Council for the Exploration of the Sea), there has been a 50% reduction in fishing pressure across all commercial stocks in the North Atlantic since 2000.
