These papers were written by SSACN Members and address a variety of sea angling related conservation topics.

To do nothing is not an option Why we believe Scotland is failing in its duty to protect sharks and rays in danger of extinction according to the IUCN. FAO, ICES and many NGO’s.
The forgotten sea Is the Scottish Government is turning a blind eye to the destruction of fish stocks and Marine biodiversity of the west and south west coast of Scotland because of the lucrative returns from the destructive langoustine industry ?
The Collapsing Clyde Fishing down the foodchain has reduced the Clyde to a mere shadow of its former self, once a ‘mecca’ for sea anglers, now essentially a fishless dessert.

Years of uncontrolled exploitation have destroyed it. There could be a future, but it will require a bold political solution.
