MMO Appointee – Commercial

Derek Clarke, Shipwright and part-time commercial fisherman.

I have during the last 50 or so years spent a great idea of my leisure time fishing and messing around in boats.  Over that period I have sadly witnessed (for whatever reason) the decline of many of our marine species and wish to try to contribute towards improvement of our marine environment and the sustainability of whatever we may remove from it.

I am a GMB Trade Union representative and members of the TU negotiating committee at BAE Systems.  I am also a contributing member of both Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth.
