More Government support for the commercial fishing communities

THE North Sea Women’s Network - an international organisation based in Scotland, set up to better the lives and livelihoods of people living in coastal communities - is hosting a conference in Edinburgh next month to look at the issues surrounding the management of change in coastal communities.

Funded by the Scottish Government and sponsored by the North Sea Commission, the event will be opened by Richard Lochhead and will be held at The Hub on May 14.

An international panel of presenters will tackle issues related to fisheries and aquaculture; workshops will explore issues facing women in coastal communities and look at ways to regenerate communities, keep young people in them, and put back a sense of pride.

Nicki Holmyard, network chair said “We are keen to attract the wives of fishermen, those involved in aquaculture and the seafood industry in any capacity. The conference is free of charge, and assistance with travel and accommodation may be available.”

The organisers are especially interested in feedback from the workshop sessions, which will be presented to a government convention on communities later this year.

The Government continues to ignore the plight of those communities dependent on sea angling and other marine recreational activities.
