In January 2014, the First Minister announced that a Wild Fisheries Review would be undertaken during 2014.
The aims of the review were to:
- Develop and promote a modern, evidence-based management system for wild fisheries fit for purpose in the 21st century, and capable of responding to the changing environment
- Manage, conserve and develop our wild fisheries to maximise the sustainable benefit of Scotland’s wild fish resources to the country as a whole and particularly to rural areas
On 8 October 2014 (yesterday), the review panel submitted its final report and recommendations to the Minister for Environment and Climate Change.
Ministers will now consider the report in depth and will consult on proposals to implement a new management system.
