Report of the Static Gear Questionnaire

The North and East Coast RIFG issued a questionnaire from 4 December 2018 to 5 January 2019 to explore views around management options for static gear fishing. 

A questionnaire exploring the views of commercial inshore fishermen working static gear within 0-6 NM from the north and east coast of Scotland.

A report on the outcome of the questionnaire was discussed at the 18 January 2019 meeting of the North and East Coast RIFG, and is available to view here.


Our Aim

The Regional Inshore Fisheries Groups (RIFGs) aim to improve the management of inshore fisheries in the 0-12 nautical mile zone of Scottish waters, and to give commercial inshore fishermen a strong voice in wider marine management developments.
