The Sustainable Inshore Fisheries Trust (SIFT) is a Scottish Charity, aiming to promote the sustainable management of Scotland’s inshore waters so that they provide the maximum long term benefits to all coastal communities.
At present, SIFT are proposing a Regulating Order (RO) for the Firth of Clyde. The RO aims to implement a new management regime for the Firth to support a more diverse, robust and sustainable fishery. Please find attached a document which summarises this proposal.
Please note the full Draft RO proposal will be published in April 2015. Following publication, a full round of consultations will be held with the fishing industry and other stakeholders.
The campaign is using a petition style format to gather support to encourage the Scottish Government to adopt a more sustainable management system for the fishery. You can pledge your support in a quick easy step on the website below.
