A SELSEY small boat fisherman has been appointed chairman of the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations after being unanimously elected by the federation’s executive committee.

Tony Delahunty took up the position at the NFFO’s recent AGM and succeeds Cornish representative Paul Trebilcock, who has held the position since 2012 and will now adopt the role of president.

Tony operates an under-10 metre vessel targeting both shellfish and whitefish from Selsey and also holds the position of chairman of the organisation’s south east committee.

Tony said: ‘I am grateful for the confidence of my colleagues on the NFFO executive. It is important that the federation continues to reflect the diversity of our fleets and as a small boat fisherman I look forward to playing my part.’
