Conservative Party publish Quality of Life report

The Conservative party say their report covers every aspect of the quality of life agenda: transport and housing; urban planning and the quality of public space; pollution, waste, biodiversity and the countryside; energy and climate change.

A section - Marine, Coastal and Fisheries available here contains items of interest and value regarding issues around the management of the commercial marine environment.

However, we felt there was a lack of detail and direction regarding sea angling and conservation, in particular the lack of involvement in inshore fisheries management, loss of biodiversity, lack of recognition of the contribution sea angling makes to the Scottish economy (£150+ million/yr) and the effects of destructive, illegal or non-sustainable commercial fishing practices.

We have written to the Scottish Conservative Party to ask for their views on these issues; this post will be updated once we have a reply.
