Nick has more than 45 years experience in the fishing industry from establishing merchant and processing companies and from spending a very short time attempting to be a fisherman. Introducing mechanical grading machines and opening up the markets in Spain for Newlyn fish were firsts in the 1980’s.
Reviving Cornwall’s traditional pilchard fishery by rebranding the fish as “Cornish Sardines” with Marks and Spencer in 1998 and founding the Cornish Sardine Management Association resulted in renewed investment in vessels and onshore processing by many Cornish companies.
Though semi-retired he still oversees the manufacturing and marketing of “The Pilchard Works” brand of tinned fillets to Waitrose and wholesalers in the UK.
Nick is looking forward to aiding the commission to implement a Long Term Development Strategy.
Newlyn’s location within the new UK fishing area offers unique opportunities for its vibrant community to finally benefit from new investment.
