The Oban Times - - NEWS -

THE body that rep­re­sents the largest num­ber of scal­lop fish­er­men in Scot­land has wel­comed gov­ern­ment mea­sures to help pro­tect king scal­lop stocks.

Anne-Mar­garet An­der­son, in­shore and en­vi­ron­men­tal pol­icy co- or­di­na­tor for the Scot­tish White Fish Pro­duc­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion (SWFPA) , said the con­trols, which will come into force from June, would help im­prove sus­tain­abil­ity.

‘The SWFPA scal­lop com­mit­tee, which speaks for the ma­jor­ity of scal­lop fish­er­men around our shores, is fully com­mit­ted to en­hanc­ing the con­ser­va­tion sta­tus of these stocks, which is why we sup­port these mea­sures,’ she said.
