Infographic: Who are the Coastal Champions?
Since February 2015, NUTFA and Greenpeace have been on an epic 25-stop boat tour of England and Wales, drumming up support for local, sustainable fishermen.
Along the way, we’ve been asking local candidates to become Coastal Champions and support our Coastal Champions Action Plan. We've enjoyed enormous success, with over 120 politicians pledging to put local fishermen first, followed by manifesto commitments from all of the major political parties!
Below is a Wall of Fame, where we’re celebrating the candidates who not only made the Coastal Champions pledge, but came along to our events. Whilst some candidates couldn’t make it, they did make the effort to pledge remotely, so be sure to check out our full list of who has and hasn’t pledged to champion coastal communities.
We’re now relying on our elected Coastal Champions to ensure that these promises are kept and that future fishing generations have the security they need.
