With the UK seafood industry currently facing a number of significant challenges joined-up thinking and communication across all industry sectors is crucial. This Common Language Group Bite-size meeting provides an opportunity to hear more about current and future fisheries policy, as well as the trade implications of what has happened/is likely to happen over the next few months.
