Last chance to have your say on fishing proposals
A SERIES of public meetings around the Firth of Clyde, to highlight concerns over the potential community-wide impact of proposed fishing regulations, are being held by the Clyde Fishermen’s Association (CFA).
The CFA has been hosting community meetings in Campbeltown, Carradale, Tarbert, Port Ellen ( Islay), Troon, Stranraer and Largs, with the last of the meetings due to take place on November 30.
Elaine Whyte, secretary of the CFA, said: ‘The meetings are open to everyone who is concerned about the survival of our communities, whether they are directly connected with fishing or not.
‘The management arrangements for Marine Protected Areas ( MPAs) in the Clyde combined with a proposed Regulating Order from the Sustainable Inshore Fisheries Trust (SIFT) have the potential to impact upon every aspect of community life, including local businesses and schools.’
