George Eustice – 2013 Comments on Sea Angling

The comments made by George Eustice, the then Minister for Farming, Food and Fisheries, on 27 November 2013.

Sea angling creates money and jobs for rural communities as well as making an important contribution to the national economy. Looking after our sea life is just as much an economic issue as it is an environmental one. It’s in everybody’s interest to manage fish stocks sensibly so people can continue to enjoy the sport and support local businesses.
