As part of the continued work on developing a sustainable and well managed fishery, Marine Scotland hosted the first annual Inshore Fisheries Conference on 8 February 2013 at Eden Court, Inverness.
This conference brought together the entire industry for the first time and provided an opportunity to share views and ideas, and to discuss the future management of this important fisheries sector for Scotland. It also provided the opportunity to celebrate our inshore fisheries and the outstanding quality of the seafood they land.
Marine Scotland plans to hold a second national conference in 2014 and is also considering two smaller events later in 2013, focusing on the east and west coasts.
A full report of the conference and notes from the breakout sessions (including details of registered delegates) are available to download below. The online leaflet which provided information about the conference is also available.
