Be in the know - the Cornish PO (CFPO) launches a monthly newsletter!

Looking Forwards - What's on the horizon for 2018?
Welcome to the first edition of CFPO's new quarterly digital newsletter. With the UK's future as an independent coastal state getting closer, we are working to ensure our fishing industry is profitable, sustainable and resilient. 2017 has been a busy year, and has concluded with the usual hectic December Council negotiations - with some disappointments, and some useful 'wins' for SW fishermen. More on this below.

2018 will see us continue to meet with MPs, Ministers and officials at the highest levels to steer a course through Brexit which will deliver security and prosperity for our members. This will also be a key year for work on discards - with full implementation of the Landing Obligation looming in 2019.

Across the year we will be sharing digital and print newsletters to keep our members in the loop on our activity, share community news and policy updates. We'll also be launching a new CFPO website in January - your news, views and images are welcomed.

Read on for further detail from December Council, a full look back at 2017 and more.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas & a prosperous New Year,
Paul Trebilcock
