Bardsey Island fishermen 'key to decision' on tidal project

A tidal energy project could be developed near Bardsey Island in Gwynedd.

Local community enterprise YnNi Llyn has teamed up with Nova Innovation to explore the possibility of deploying an array of underwater turbines in Bardsey Sound.

Some fishermen claim it could "devastate" their livelihoods.

But Brian Thomas from YnNi Llyn said they are "not in the game of undermining, or destroying, or replacing sustainable businesses" and fishermen will be "key to any decision".
