SWFish Registered CIC
The southwest fishing industry is a major driver to our local economy. Not just in the fishing industry itself but in complementary services and industries. A prosperous, sustainable fishing industry will lead to long term employment opportunities for both local people and graduates from regional Universities.
Our fishermen across Cornwall and Devon are extremely responsible, and environmentally concise. They are hard workers and take the brunt of any financial set backs due to.. Quota complications, poor catch, bad weather, poor fish prices and changing consumer habits.. Fishermen go to extraordinary lengths to ensure we get the finest, freshest seafood on our dinner plates.
They care about the sea and how it is farmed because its their livelihoods! What we would like to see is a more sustainable industry, supported by the wider community, where fish is sourced responsibly, more money retained into our local economy, leading to more quota, more fishing licenses and a prosperous industry. Where fishermen have more control over the decisions that directly affect their businesses.
Through swFish we wanted to bring together a unique blend of skills, expert knowledge and passion. Grounded by creativity, new ideas and alternative business thinking, using modern Technology. We aim to add value to the industries own initiatives and ensure sustainable growth and good prices into the future.
