Fishing News Awards

The Fishing News Awards is the only awards ceremony dedicated to celebrating the hard work and dedication of British and Irish commercial fishermen.

The Awards were reinstated in 2016 by the new owners of Fishing News, Kelsey Media. We were tasked with promoting the ambitious programme in its first year and then growing this interest in 2017, 2018 and now, for the 2019 event.

In particular, our 2017 and 2018 objectives were focused on encouraging support from the wider fishing community, largely through an increase in the number of nominees and votes – though also from social media engagement.

Overall, the aim was to celebrate the vital work of British and Irish fishermen and raise the profile of the industry.
