Ministerial Statement - Voluntary Closures

Responding to the ministerial statement today on fisheries in which Richard Lochhead detailed that the first voluntary real time closure had taken place, John Scott MSP, Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs & the Environment, said:

“This is a welcome development in terms of delivering truly sustainable fisheries, as it turns theory into reality. Therefore, it must be the direction of travel for the future.

However if we are serious about eliminating the scandal of discards then much more needs to be done to encourage and incentivise our fishermen to use sophisticated and selective gear.”
