South Devon College launches fishing apprenticeship

SWFPO are thrilled to see the launch of a new apprenticeship scheme designed for commercial fishers of the future, having been involved in the development of the the new course with South Devon College over the past 12 months.

Working alongside our members, apprentices on the scheme will learn how to sustainably harvest fish and shellfish as well as learn about fishing methods.

This will hopefully go someway to address the current recruitment shortage that is one of the biggest challenges facing the industry right now.
