It is the intention of the NESFC to form a new working group consisting of members of the industry to improve communication between the Committee and its stakeholders The proposed Fishing Industry Working Gruop will consist initially of ten members and the allocations of seats will be as follows: 1) Potting Representatives (5 seats) 2) Trawling Representatives (3 seats) 3) Sea Angling Representative (1 seat) 4) Recreational Fishermen (1 seat) This group will meet at least twice a year to discuss all current issues within the CommitteeÃ‚Â¿s area and in particular the management of local shellfish stocks. It is the intention of the Committee for the working group to request the attendance of external organisations such as Natural England, MFA or Scientific Expertise to consider specific issues or policy. The group will feed its recommendations to the full Committee for consideration and further action. This group will be an opportunity for fishermen to liaise directly with the NESFC over management policy and future strategies for sustainability of the inshore fishing grounds through their own appointed representative.
