Following the meeting with the Fishermen’s Association of Bermuda (FAB), Deputy Premier and Minister Roban said, “Today’s meeting was held with the Executive of the FAB facilitated by the Premier to address concerns raised in the petition presented to the government.
The conversation was very respectful and informative on both sides, and there is a mutual understanding that Bermuda’s ocean future is a priority for all of us. After extensive discussions on various topics, I expressed my willingness to continue to meet with the FAB to get further details and craft a way forward with trust and understanding in mind.”
Mr. Allan Bean, President of the stated, “ The FAB executive team was grateful for the support shown by the general public, with almost 5,000 petition signatures gathered, and their members and supporters for gathering Today to present the petition.
The FAB also agreed that, upon seeking feedback from their general membership, we would chart a way forward for them to eventually resume participation in the process of crafting a Blue Prosperity Plan. We agreed to work together to ensure the sustainability of the livelihood of Bermuda’s Fishermen.
Minster Roban continued, “ As the Deputy Premier and Minister of Home Affairs, I am committed to working with the FAB and other stakeholders to protect and ensure a positive ocean future for all.”
