We need a reassignment of quotas for inside the twelve mile limit to favour local day boats who employ local fishermen and benefit the local community, and not cartels who sweep up all the quotas as now.
Why is this important?
It will benefit local communities which rely on fishing and establish us as a coastal nation in our own right. It will bring economic benefits to our fishing towns and villages and provide security and employment for future generations. It will make the fishermen locally accountable for catches and help sustainability of our fish stocks.
