Plaid ensures that the voices of Welsh Fisherman are heard.

Plaid Cymru's agriculture minister Elin Jones yesterday (Thursday) joined with Jill Evans MEP and Plaid parliamentary candidate for Ceredigion, Penri James, to meet local fishermen and listen to concerns for the future of the local seafood industry. The group met on Aberystwyth’s quay on the opening day of the party’s annual conference which is being held in the town.
Elin Jones AM said:

“The resources we have in Wales ’ seas are of great importance, and our fishing fleet is an essential element of the food production industry. I am proud that Aberystwyth, and Ceredigion as a whole, is such an excellent showcase for the rich diversity of our food production industry. This is something that I hope to highlight to Plaid members from across Wales as they arrive in the town for this year’s conference”.

Jill Evans MEP said:

“With a Plaid Rural Affairs Minister in the Assembly and with my own work as an MEP, Wales now has a strong voice for our food production industry in Europe – and people in the fishing industry know how important that is. We no longer have to rely on London ministers to understand the challenges we face, and then only hope that they take these to the European stage on our behalf. Alongside Elin, I’ve been able to fight for our agricultural and rural communities in Europe”.

Plaid Cymru Candidate for Ceredigion, Penri James said:

“In this area, pot fishermen have had a difficult time because of the practices of some of the scallop fishermen. I’ve asked Elin to intervene in an effort to come up with an arrangement that will ensure the viability of all types of fishing. Both Elin and Jill are fully engaged with the needs of the industry”.
