Scottish Creel Fishermen’s Federation website

| May 3, 2013

scff_logo_250The Scottish Creel Fishermen’s Federation (SCFF), the national trade association for the creel fishing industry has launched a website.

According to the home page, creel fishing is  a traditional and sustainable form of coastal fishing for shell fish that supports more jobs around the coastline of Scotland than any other type of fishery.

Creel fishing (also known as Potting) is referred to as a ‘passive’ or ‘static’ form of fishing as the baited creels are dropped from the boat to the seabed where they soak until they are next retrieved by the vessel. The main species targeted in Scotland are prawns, lobster and crabs. Different bait is used depending on what species is being targeted.
