WILD FISHERIES REFORM DROP-IN SESSIONS


The SGA Fishing Group would like to inform all members and those with an interest in wild fish in Scotland that Scottish Government is to host drop-in events across Scotland where interested parties and the general public can discuss issues raised in the recent consultation on Wild Fisheries reform.
The SGA Fishing Group is part of the stakeholder group and has attended two meetings on the reform so far. However, we think it would be very useful for those with questions they want to ask, to attend the sessions with Scottish Government officials as we move towards the bill’s first stages.
The first two events have been announced as:

22 June: Jury’s Inn Hotel, Aberdeen. 11am – 3pm. 
29 June: Ben Nevis Hotel, Fort William. 11am – 3pm. 

There will be further dates announced in due course. Keep up to date with these, and other reform issues, on:

UPDATE: The full drop-in programme, with dates and venues has now been finalised. See here: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/marine/Salmon-Trout-Coarse/fishreform/events
