Stevenson Applauds Publication Of New SFF Environmental Policy Statement

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the publication of an updated Environmental Policy Statement by the Scottish Fishermen's Federation which underlines the industry's ongoing commitment to fishing in an environmentally responsible manner.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

"The publication of the first Scottish Fishermen's Federation's Environmental Statement in 2008 was a major landmark which demonstrated to the world the commitment that the industry in Scotland has to sustainable and environmentally responsible practices.

"Nobody has more to gain from fishing being both profitable and sustainable than the Scottish fishing industry itself, and as well as showing a commitment to protecting the health of the stocks it relies on, the statement helped to re-affirm the first class reputation of the Scottish fleet to consumers.

"This updated statement takes into account the changes and innovations that have taken place in the last two years and clearly demonstrates that the importance the fishing industry places on sustainability has not faded. It is an approach which I applaud and I believe that the industry in Scotland's determination to play an active role in conservation despite the difficult circumstances they face is something they should be truly proud of."
