Awards

Welcome to the 2021 Fishing News Awards!

Fishing News is proud to present the Fishing News Awards 2021, which shines a spotlight on the achievements, innovations, and successes of the commercial fishing industries of the UK and Ireland in 2020.

The Fishing News Awards recognises the collective achievement of the industry, the strength of which is much greater than its individual parts, so it’s important that the efforts of fishermen, boat builders, port staff, processors, seafood retailers, product manufacturers and service companies are all celebrated.

Our grateful thanks go to everyone who has helped to make this year’s awards possible, and particularly to our sponsors: the Fishing Industry Safety Group, the Fishmongers’ Company’s Fisheries Charitable Trust, the Scottish White Fish Producers’ Association, Seafish and Sunderland Marine. The encouragement and support they have given to this year’s awards has been invaluable and very much appreciated.

With increasing focus on the paramount importance of safety at sea, we were delighted to welcome the Fishing Industry Safety Group (FISG) as our Safety Partner for this year’s awards. FISG is generously sponsoring a competition to win £250 towards the cost of safety equipment or training. If you have not yet entered, there’s still time to do so here.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to make nominations and place votes in this year’s awards, and to all the shortlisted candidates for taking part. Our congratulations go to all of this year’s winners – and also to the many very deserving runners-up.

We hope that the Fishing News Awards 2021 have offered a respite from the challenges currently being faced by everyone in the UK and Irish fishing industry – and a reminder of its continuing resilience and resolve, in the face of all the odds.
