FISHING INDUSTRY LINKS

The Cornish Fish Producers Organisation (CFPO)
The CFPO began in 1976 as a non-profit making co-operative. Today it has 210 fishing vessel members for all over Cornwall.  Their fishermen own vessels ranging in size from a 5 metre single-handed cove boat to a 38 metre beam trawler.  They use a diverse range of fishing techniques including trawling, beam trawling, crab/lobster potting, gill-netting, longlining, drift-netting, scallop dredging, ring-netting and handlining.

The National Federation of Fishermen's Organisation (NFFO)
The purpose of NFFO is to ensure that the fishermen of England, Wales and Northern Ireland have a strong and clear voice when decisions are made that affect their livelihoods.
