A CHAIRPERSON has been appointed to promote seafood from the Gladstone region.

A new Gladstone Seafood Promotion Fund was announced late last year to "revitalise" the local seafood industry. Gladstone Ports Corporation established the fund and will contribute $1.5 million to it.

The fund is born out of an often spiteful battle between GPC and commercial fishermen over whether the major dredging project in Gladstone Harbour has hurt the industry.

Commercial fishermen claim the dredging project has damaged fish stocks and hurt their livelihoods.

GPC argues marine health was not hurt by dredging, but the argument has damaged the reputation of the region's seafood.

The fund will be chaired by Peter Milne who is chairman of the Board for Safe Food Queensland and other organisations. Expressions of interest are being sought from commercial and recreational fishermen and wholesalers for the committee.
