To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation regarding the impact of the common fisheries policy.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 16 March 2017
The Scottish Government works closely with the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation, and with other fishermen’s representatives, to manage sea fisheries in Scotland. Working together, we have made sure that the Common Fisheries Policy has been implemented in as sensible a way as possible in Scotland. We will also continue to work together to develop effective fisheries management policies for the future.
