Save Britain’s Fish – Introduction : BOO
This month Better Off Out is running a campaign focussing on the disastrous Common Fisheries Policy of the European Union. We are explaining the damage done to Britain’s marine environment and to our fishing industry. We also explain how the situation would be improved if we left the European Union and regained control over our coastal and territorial waters.
For this podcast Rupert Matthews travelled down to Cornwall to speak to those working in the fishing and related industries. The singing you can hear is by the boys in the Newquay Rowing Club.
