Inshore Fisheries Seminar –

Inshore Fisheries Seminar Published:  12 October, 2006

THE issues and opportunities surrounding the local Scottish inshore fishing industry will be discussed at a seminar in Peterhead next month.

The event, hosted by the East Grampian Coastal Partnership, will include discussion on the ‘Strategic Framework for Inshore Fisheries in Scotland’ as well as Workshops on selling local seafood and inshore fisheries science.

The importance of inshore fisheries should not be under-estimated as three out of every four Scottish fishing vessels fish in inshore waters, which are amongst the most productive in the world.
