Seafish Economics Key Features: West of Scotland nephrops fishery - Review of issues facing the industry

H C Curtis, S M Anton

During a review of sector performance, the West of Four Fisheries Management Group (WOFFMG) identified issues adversely affecting the profitability of dependent vessel businesses and the sustainability of the nephrops stock in the west of Scotland area. In order to solve the problems effectively, industry representatives and Highland Council officials agreed that they should seek assistance from the Scottish Executive to tackle the issues in a structured way. Their first priorities were to gain a better understanding of the causes and implications of the issues, and to obtain fishermen’s views on possible solutions. Seafish research conducted in the first half of 2006 showed the scale and scope of these issues, recorded the views of fishermen on some possible solutions, and the study report recommends next steps to identifying agreed solutions.
