Cornwall's 'One-Stop Fishing Shop' goes online

The Cornwall Fisheries Resource Centre, Cornwall's 'one-stop-shop' for advice, training and information for fishermen, fish merchants, fish processors and fishing related businesses today launches its new website at www.cfrc.org.uk to enable users to access information they need 24-hours a day and on weekends.

"We appreciate that everybody involved in the fish industry leads very busy lives and often don't get time in their working day to contact us when we are open so the new website really means we can be 'open all hours' for information on events, training dates, reports, latest news and grants" said project director, Nathan de Rozarieux.

The site has been designed by local web-designer Gabriella Nonino of Sandswimmer.net to be easily updated so content can be kept current and to also act as an on-line notice board with sections for crew looking for berths, buying/selling boats, galley table 'chat room' and picture gallery.

The Resource Centre is also part of the 'Knowledge Network' for the new Business Link Fish REG project which can provide investment for training or group activities and research information to groups involved in the fish industry across the South West.

The Centre also has regular Objective One (FIFG) investment advice 'surgeries' at 11am every Wednesday when SW Pesca project officer, Robin Davies is on hand to help applicants and potential applicants with their ideas.

For further information please contact Nathan de Rozarieux on 01736 364324 or 01736 874304.

The Objective One Programme for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has invested in the Cornwall Fisheries Resource Centre through the Financial Instrument for Fisheries Guidance (FIFG).
