Independent charity Fishing into the Future (FitF) is offering places on its Business of Fishing course, held at Thainstone House near Aberdeen, 26-28th February.

According to Jim Masters of FitF, the course is fully funded and some travel support is also available for participants. The three-day course takes in fisheries science, management and economics.

‘This seeks to bring all who attend on a journey into the what, when and why of fisheries science and management. You will work with other like-minded professionals in a neutral setting to explore and interrogate the processes involved, share insights and build understanding away from the pressures of fishery regulation,’ he said.

‘The course has been built with the help of fishermen. It will meet your needs by complementing your current knowledge while providing you with practical opportunities to go deep ‘under the bonnet’ of fisheries science and management. We hope it will stretch your thinking: no in-depth scientific knowledge is needed to enrol. Just come with an open mind and a willing spirit.’

He added that this course is focused on the science and management that underpins quota-based fisheries.

‘These are the fisheries reliant on scientific advice from ICES. All fishermen, from all sectors are welcome – this is great opportunity to learn from each other, whatever sector or area of Scotland you are operating in.’
