Sea Food – See Women on World Fisheries Day!
21/11/2014

The National Rural Women’s Coalition is delighted to recognise the many women who contribute to the seafood industry.                                                                         

Celebrating women in the seafood industry is a priority for Leonie Noble, President, Women’s Industry Network Seafood Industry (WINSC) today on World Fisheries Day.

Women are, and have historically been, integral to the professional fishing industry and seafood marketing in Australia.

“Largely perceived as a male dominated industry the fact is that women are a significant force throughout the sector”, said Ms Leonie Noble.

The NRWC recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as First Nation traditional owners and custodians of country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to elders both past and present.
