Outer Hebrides Line Caught Mackerel Report

Interesting Project we did some time ago on Line Caught Mackerel

Report is self explanatory - proved that fish in good condition had a ready market. It was very hot weather which brought its own challenges in keeping the catch fresh, some innovation was applied. Hasn't been done again here to my knowledge at this scale but jigging is a well known fishing method and other boats are using it in season elsewhere.


Our Aim

The Regional Inshore Fisheries Groups (RIFGs) aim to improve the management of inshore fisheries in the 0-6 nautical mile zone of Scottish waters, and to give commercial inshore fishermen a strong voice in wider marine management developments.
