Dan Watson wins James Dyson Award

Claire Baker lodged Motion S4M-03951 on the 30th of August:

That the Parliament warmly congratulates Dan Watson, a graduate of the Glasgow School of Art, on being named winner of the UK James Dyson Award; understands that his SafteyNet system is designed to make fishing more sustainable by offering smaller fish an escape route from trawl nets through escape rings that are fitted to the cod-end of existing nets; notes that the rings light up to act as an “emergency exit” sign for the fish; hopes that this can lead to a decrease in discards; understands that Dan will now be competing against finalists from 17 other countries to win the international award, and wishes him all the best in the competition.
