Background

In January 2014, the First Minister announced that a Wild Fisheries Review would be undertaken during 2014.

The aims of the review were to:

  • develop and promote a modern, evidence-based management system for wild fisheries fit for purpose in the 21st century and capable of responding to the changing environment
  • manage, conserve and develop our wild fisheries to maximise the sustainable benefit of Scotland’s wild fish resources to the country as a whole and particularly to rural areas

On 8 October 2014, the review submitted its final report and 54 recommendations to the Minister for Environment and Climate Change.
