Nigel Blazeby , Waterdance Managing Director said, ‘we are looking forward to having Martyn as part of our dynamic team. There are considerable challenges ahead in Fisheries; from Quota Management , Sustainability, the Landing Obligation and Brexit! Having someone who has an understanding of how fisheries management works will be of great benefit. A flow of skills and experience between regulators and the fishing industry is a positive move; ‘revolving doors’ and crossing over of expertise can only make for a better industry’.
