About

Protecting the Interests of Scottish Fishermen Since 1943

Our goal is to create and maintain resilient business and long-term stability so that our members feel confident in planning forward. This can only be achieved through sustainable harvesting; our members understand that their true wealth is not what they land to market but what they leave behind in the sea.
