More PFDs to English and Welsh fishermen
UK safety supplier Ocean Safety will continue to supply Mullion Compact PFDs (personal flotation devices) to Seafish, after the application for further funding was successful.
As a result of funding via the European Fisheries Fund (EFF), the next phase of the contract will see Ocean Safety deliver 1,670 jackets, which will be distributed to commercial fishermen in England and Wales, as part of an ongoing Fishing Industry Safety Group (FISG) initiative, which aims to drive up safety standards.
Approximately 7,000 fishermen in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland have already benefitted from the initiative and in the next 18 months, the remaining fishermen will be awarded the jackets.
Many PFDs will be given to eligible fisherman throughout the course of The Skipper Expo International in Bournemouth, which will be held 10-11 October 2014.
