Fleetwood Whelk Fishermen (2016)
Provided with financial assistance to help the company to exploit the local whelk fisheries (2016)
Funds were provided to the fishing company (B and M Fishing LLP), based in Fleetwood (Lancashire) to assist its fishing operations in the exploitation of the non-quota fish resource, the common whelk (Buccinum undatum) (2016). The company presently operates a fleet of four fishing vessels.
This project was financed by Ørsted in return for co-operation of the fishermen during the construction of both the Walney Extension and Burbo Bank extension offshore wind farms.
