Fisheries Management Plan
The aims and objectives of the North & East Coast Regional Inshore Fisheries Group are set out in its Fisheries Management Plan.
The North and East Coast Regional Inshore Fisheries Group covers the area between Durness on the north coast and all the east coast down to Burnmouth by the border with England.
The Group was established in April 2016 and succeeds the Moray Firth & North Coast Inshore Fisheries Group and East Coast Inshore Fisheries Groups, that were in place from 2013 to 2016.
The North and East Coast Regional Inshore Fisheries Group operates a Management Committee of representatives from fishermen’s associations of both the mobile and static sectors.
The Management Committee is responsible for developing and implementing its Fisheries Management Plan for the region as well as being a forum for discussing inshore fishing issues and making recommendations to Marine Scotland.
