Fishing industry leaders focus meeting on bringing in more money

Posted: Updated:

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) -- Local fishing industry leaders met Tuesday to discuss the Fisheries Investment and Regulatory Relief Act in an effort to bring more money to local communities. 

The FIRRA bill will divert $85 million in revenues and tariff funding from imported seafood back to coastal communities and fishermen. 

The meeting was held at Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant.

"One important thing that firra would bring back home to coastal communities is better research good science to tell what's going on with the fishery, and help to create sustainable oceans which helps create sustainable economies," said Dean Foster, the CEO of Foster and Associates.
