Scottish Inshore Fisheries Conference

Inshore Fisheries Conference LogoThe fourth Scottish Inshore Fisheries Conference will be held on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th April 2017 at Eden Court in Inverness.

Free registration is now open here.

Join us on the afternoon of Thursday 27th April with a session to introduce the EMFF-funded Scottish Inshore Fisheries Integrated Data System or ‘SIFIDS’ Project. This project will focus on using new technologies and processes to improve data collection and use within Scotland’s inshore fisheries, with the intention of reducing the reporting burden on fishermen and improving the information-base on which fisheries management decisions are made. This session is then followed by the official opening of the conference at an evening reception at Eden Court (17.30-19.00) and we welcome all delegates to attend this.

On Friday 28th April 2017, Fergus Ewing MSP (Cabinet Secretary for the Rural Economy and Connectivity) will open the day, and delegates will also have the opportunity to attend sessions on a variety of subjects including fisheries management challenges and actions, Brexit, marketing the local catch and a session delivered by Norwegian colleagues on how they manage inshore fisheries. 

There will be ample opportunity for networking, visiting stands, speaking to representatives from a range of organisations, celebrating our fantastic seafood, and sharing experiences and knowledge in an informal setting on a wide range of issues.

Join us for both days or register for one.

Free registration is now open here.

Three previous conferences have been held: at Eden Court in 2015Perth Concert Hall in 2014 and Eden Court, Inverness in 2013. Further details are available on their individual pages.
