Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson said that the engagement between herself accompanied by local Sinn Féin elected representatives and the fishing industry in South Down was very worthwhile.

South Down Sinn Féin had invited members from the fishing industry including fishermen, fish processors and representatives from Ardglass and Kilkeel fishing community to a working breakfast with the Sinn Féin MEP in order to listen to the concerns of the industry.

The aim of the exercise was to exchange information and set out a plan of action that will benefit the fishing community in South Down.

The fishing industry is an important part of the South Down economy and this meeting allowed an exchange of information that will benefit both the industry and Sinn Féin in protecting and promoting the industry in the future.
