WORKING with the fishing industry and contributing to its long-term future is the key focus of the UK Sea Fish’s Industry Authority annual review.

The review outlines the authority’s key recommendations over the year and lists its key targets for the future.

“We are developing a more open culture to help us listen and work with industry more effectively, starting at board level and moving through the whole organisation,” says Seafish chairman Andrew Dewar-Durie in the report’s foreward.

“Wev have increased involvement of industry in driving projects forward via working groups on training, Seafood Week and the Quality Processor Award.A joined-up approach to quality and marketing has been achieved by sharing agendas with regional development bodies.We have also improved awareness of Seafish activity by regular briefings with Government.”

Other authority achievments over the year included an economic analysis of the costs and benefits of measures employed by fishing vessels to improve the quality of fish landed in the UK.
