BLUE NEWS

BLUE are thrilled to have been awarded GAP2 funding to facilitate a trip for our Lyme Bay fishermen to visit Morro Bay, US. In this Huffington Post blog, Charles Clover, BLUE’s Chairman writes about the successes of fisheries management along the West Coast of USA where innovations are helping to rebuild fisheries that offer particular relevance to European waters.

The Lyme Bay Fisheries and Conservation Reserve has made it in to the FINAL of the Natura 2000 Awards – established to recognise and promote excellence in nature conservation. In this pilot year of the award 163 applications from all over Europe were submitted and the level of competition was very high and we are delighted to have made it to the list of 22 finalists and have been invited to the final award ceremony in Brussels in May 2014!

We submitted under the Reconciling Interests category, more information can be seen via the link below.

Fingers crossed and wish us luck!
