Campaign: To encourage young people to pursue a career in the fishing industry

My Fixers project is to get more school leavers to consider a career in the fishing industry. 

 

You can make a really good career fishing all around the British coast line and there’s a demand for younger crew.

 

The older crew all around the country are now getting into their fifties and sixties and they want to take a step back but there’s not the push of youngsters getting in to the game which is such a shame.

 

Everywhere in the world people are crying out for fishermen.

 

I feel that schools should be putting more time and effort in to showing young people there’s lots of different parts of the industry you can get into. 

 

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix:
