Since 1943, we've worked to protect the interests of Scottish fishermen. Our members both own and crew a broad range of vessel size and type. From smaller inshore and scallop boats to trawlers, pair trawlers and modern prawn vessels.
With legislation, regulation and the political climate changing at an ever-increasing pace, our members continue to face new challenges. Our role at SWFPA is to understand those challenges and shape policy in a way that protects their interests in a manner so that the industry remains profitable and sustainable.
We work with members, politicians and our partners in the Scottish Fishermen's Federation to safeguard the future of fishing – and the livelihoods of fishermen and their communities.
The cameras show 98 per cent of sensitive seafloor biodiversity remains pristine after 16 years of commercial fishing.
The truth is out Deep-sea destruction is a myth created by fundamentalist, green organisations. http://t.co/Di4KxUHqWC
