Fishermen in court over battle for fairer quotas

  • Posted

Harrison Grant represents NUTFA – the organisation representing the inshore fleet – in  a case about the allocation of fish quota.  The large producer organisation is challenging the Government’s decision to give more quota to the inshore fleet.  We are representing NUTFA and Greenpeace as “interveners” to argue that fishing quota should not be regarded as a possession, and that the Government should be free to allocate a greater share to NUTFA and its members.
