Brixham Trawler Makers

Today I was in Brixham to visit Brixham Trawlers Makers for a discussion on the marine environment and in particular the campaign to reduce marine pollution including plastics and old fishing gear. I have always been supportive of protecting our seas and it was great to catch up with local lead for Fishing for Litter and hear about the incredible work from the team of volunteers working alongside the local industry to clean up our seas. Both the industry and volunteers now need more space to sort and recycle the marine debris that is being brought ashore by fishing boats rather than returned to the sea.
