Future of fisheries management in Scotland: national discussion paper

Fishing makes an important contribution to Scotland’s rural economy and is the lifeblood of many of our most fragile coastal communities. We recognise that and wish to protect and encourage the fishing industry to grow in a sustainable manner, and for the benefits that flow from fishing to be realised in these communities wherever possible.

Building on that, this discussion paper seeks to start an in-depth nationwide discussion with stakeholders to help inform and develop Scotland’s Future Fisheries Management Strategy.
