Roundstone final 

"It is high time small-scale fisheries become one of the main beneficiaries of European funding. It is justifiable to safeguard and brighten the future for the 80% of the EU fishing fleet which is small in scale and employs over 50% of the workforce, as well as for thousands of directly and indirectly dependent jobs for all workers along the value chain."

Brian O'Riordan, deputy director of the LIFE Platform (Low Impact Fishers of Europe) and Marcin Rucinski, spoke to Inshore Ireland following the publication of the European Commission's proposal on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (2021-2027).
