Save Britain’s Fish
This month Better Off Out is running a campaign focussing on the disastrous Common Fisheries Policy of the European Union. So for the second week we are looking at 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.

Spanish Subsidies Scandal – Penzance
We start with a piece about the Spanish Subsidies Scandal. This piece was recorded on the quayside at Penzance fishing harbour, so apologies for a bit of background noise.
Dave Hicks, Newlyn
We move to Newlyn for an interview with Dave Hicks, a local fisherman. Again we were talking in the harbour so there is some background noise, for which apologies.
The EU and the Decline of UK Fishing Industry
We take an overall look at the decline of the UK fishing industry under the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy.
Newquay Fishermen meeting with Ray Fitch
We close in Newquay where we attend a public meeting held by Ray Finch MEP, UKIP’s fisheries spokesmen where he was meeting with local inshore fishermen.
That’s it for this week. Don’t forget that you can learn more about this campaign on our website www.BetterOffOut.net. We are also on Facebook and Twitter and we have our own YouTube Channel as well.
