A small grants fund of £150,000 is available to support the fishing communities affected by the Wave Hub. This fund was set up to benefit the fishing communities in Hayle and St Ives. Also to some extent Newlyn, where fishing vessels can show that they fish in the waters around the Wave Hub.
The EU and the United Kingdom concluded the negotiations on an agreement in principle setting out catch limits for jointly managed fish stocks for 2021.
The new 20 metre netter for South-West fishing company Waterdance Ltd built by PARKOL MARINE ENGINEERING LTD in Whitby is en route to Newlyn
The first new offshore Netter to be built for the UK flag in almost twenty years, this new vessel represents another major milestone for the Waterdance fleet, following the building of a new Crabber, the Nichola of Ladram, in 2019, and a new Beam Trawler, the Georgina of Ladram, in 2020.
The vessel will have an overall length of 20.4 metres and a breadth of 7.70 metres, giving her improved stability at sea and ensuring ample space for comfortable, low-noise accommodation, a mess deck for a crew of eight and generous hold storage.
The UK is home to several highly-skilled shipyards, including Parkol Marine Engineering Ltd in Whitby
