South Devon Marine

I am grateful to Robin East for organising a meeting with South Devon Marine representatives from across Torbay and South Devon to discuss the challenges facing our marine industries.

In the South West alone there are more than 2700 marine dependent companies which turnover around £1.3bn per year.

Issues raised included the impact of high and unpredictable fuel costs, bureaucracy and additional costs relating to the need for an increasing number of licences.
