    SNP starting the "payback" for the fishing industry daring to go against them by campaigning to leave the EU

    Scot gov to press ahead with three big Marine Protected Areas in Minch and Sea of Hebrides as price of @scottishgreens support for budget. Good for the minke whale, probably not so good for fishing industry

    Plans to link Outer Hebrides pave way for Scotland's most spectacular drive

    http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/1...ive/?ref=fbshr

    Now the demand to make the channels between the islands MCZ/MPA/SSSI makes sense... a land grab so they can do this without paying any compensation

    Developing a participatory approach to management of fishing in UK offshore MPAs

    http://fiskerforum.dk/en/news/b/deve...-offshore-mpas

    JNCC and partners the Marine Management Organisation, Natural England, the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations and Bangor University are launching a two-year project exploring participatory processes for establishing, evaluating and adapting fisheries management measures in MPAs that include sedimentary habitats as protected features.

    The seas around the UK are home to some of the most biologically diverse habitats and species in Europe. They are a rich source of natural capital, providing us with food, a valuable income, raw materials, and opportunities for leisure and recreation. Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are one of the ways in which this natural capital can be conserved for future generations, while seeking to enable the sustainable use of resources.

    ‘This is an exciting project that aims to marry together an evidence-based approach to MPA management with a more in-depth involvement of those affected by decision-making. Ultimately, we want to produce management outcomes that are enduring, sustainable and widely supported,’ said Dale Rodmell at the NFFO.

    The project will bring together the fishing sector, regulators, scientific advisors and academic researchers to explore the challenges of managing sedimentary habitats in MPAs. Case studies will be used to aid the development of a management toolkit which can be applied to other MPAs. Crucially, the project will focus on mechanisms for enabling the fishing sector to engage positively with the management process and bring their perspectives and knowledge to the table. Opportunities for improving communications and raising societal awareness of the value of protecting marine biodiversity will also be explored.

    ‘This project gives us a fantastic opportunity to work with all marine interest groups to develop a truly novel approach to sustainable management of our seas while allowing managers to make decisions based on the very best information available,’ commented JNCC’s Declan Tobin.

    The project partners are delighted to have been awarded funding for this work through the European Maritime and Fisheries fund (EMFF) and look forward to working with the fishing sector to achieve a common goal of conserving marine biological resources whilst enabling a sustainable future for our fisheries.

    Scottish industry leaders urge PM to secure positive Brexit deal

    Scottish fishermen’s leaders yesterday met Prime Minister Theresa May to urge her to ensure that the UK takes back complete control of its waters after Brexit.

    According to Scottish Fishermen’s Federation, in a meeting at 10 Downing Street, Theresa May indicated that she understood the widespread dismay within the industry at the transitional deal which means skippers and crews will continue to be bound by the Common Fisheries Policy until December 2020.

    She stated that the focus had to be on the final Brexit deal and delivering what both the government and the industry want – fairer shares for UK fishermen.

    ‘We are very grateful to the Prime Minister for agreeing to meet us, and I’m pleased to say that we now have a commitment from both sides to work together to achieve the sea of opportunity that Brexit presents for the fishing industry,’ said Scottish Fishermen’s Federation chief executive Bertie Armstrong.

    ‘We had sincerely hoped that in 365 days’ time we would be free from the shackles of the utterly disastrous CFP and starting to build a better future for our industry. But now we must work with government to make sure that when the transition period is over we have control of our seas – access, quotas and management measures – to allow us to harvest fairer shares of UK stocks.’
