'Collaboration rather than conflict': Scottish fishermen urge government to work with the sector next year, not against it

'We urge ministers to resist the doom-laden and over-simplified platitudes of the corporately-funded environmental NGOs who have their own agenda – banning fishing regardless of the consequences.'

"So in 2024 let us have collaboration rather than conflict and reason rather than rhetoric," said Elspeth Macdonald, chief executive of the Scottish Fishermens Federation.
