Do You Land to Scottish Ports?

Please note this survey is only for vessels that land to Scottish Ports.

Marine Scotland are working on a project to collect information about fishing gear which will then be used to help design a recycling scheme. They visited many ports around Scotland, and with the help of harbour masters and local businesses, They have been able to record information about the quantity of gear in use, in storage and on order. There has been considerable support for this project following the British-Irish Council Marine Litter Symposium, and to complete the information gathering they need the help of fishers.

Designing a recycling scheme requires a thorough understanding of how fishers deal with their nets when they reach the end of their useful life.  It would be greatly appreciated if you could spare the time to complete this survey, it shouldn’t take too long, and your answers are very important to the success of any future recycling scheme.  The survey closes Wednesday 12 February.
