Friday, May 20, 2022

The four federations representing England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland recently met with Fisheries Minister, Victoria Prentis MP to underline the crisis engulfing the fishing industry caused by the high cost of fuel.

The latter is a key reason why Poland paid €7.8 per kilo (delivered the Norwegian border) for salmon last week – well below the average price of €9.5, according to export statistics from the Norwegian Seafood Council.
