The TourFish project brought 8 partner organisations together from the UK, France, Belgium and the Netherlands over 18 months to research and share knowledge on, and devise and deliver projects related to inshore fishing and the small-scale fisheries sector (SSF), agri-food, coastal resilience, and rural economic growth.

Funded by the EU ERDF Interreg IVa ‘2 Seas’ programme, TourFish realised a number of outcomes and outputs which are discussed in detail in the final project report compiled and published by the University of Greenwich –
‘Responsible Tourism: A Guide for Tourism and Sustainability in Small-Scale Fisheries and Agri-Food’.

Part of the TourFish project was the commissioning of a report on the viability of the restoration of Sidmouth Drill Hall which became an ‘Economic Evidence Report’ which can be downloaded here

We will now look to offer these reports to policymakers in Sidmouth and East Devon as contributions to new and ongoing initiatives including the Sidmouth Beach Management Plan and Port Royal Scoping Study, and in particular to the Sidmouth Town Council Neighbourhood Plan.

It is vital that everyone gets behind the Neighbourhood Plan and we hope that the work that we have done to date will contribute to and be an asset to it.

Thank you to all those that came along and joined us at Kennaway House on Wednesday night as part of Sidmouth Climate Week 2016. As discussed then, we will continue our contact and work with a number of partners including the NEF.

We hope you managed to get to taste the locally caught fish provided by Sidmouth Trawlers, part of a growing network of seafood producers and suppliers in coastal towns and villages across Devon.

We very much welcome any feedback on the Responsible Tourism Guide and the Economic Evidence Report, so please do get in touch.

Thank you.
