§ Mr. Ian Bruce
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what plans the Government have for the fishing industry in Dorset.
§ Mr. Curry
The characteristics of fisheries around our shores vary considerably but our overall aim is to work for effective conservation of fish and shellfish stocks as renewable resources. Further, representatives of the channel coast fishing industry who are members of the area VII whitefish industry advisory committee provide guidance on the management of quotas for the English channel.
