Marine Scotland will be hosting the UK Stakeholder meeting ahead of this year's autumn fisheries negotiations

Marine Scotland will be hosting the UK Stakeholder meeting on the afternoon of 29th October 2013 at Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh. The event provides an opportunity for UK Fisheries Ministers and senior officials to hear stakeholder views ahead of the 2013 autumn fisheries negotiations.

There will also be an introductory session on the UK Balance of Competencies review. The review is an objective look at the benefits, or disadvantages of the current situation with regard to UK and EU competence in each policy area, with Fisheries policy being considered this autumn, along with agriculture. To inform the review, Defra will seek evidence from as wide a range of stakeholders as possible during a consultation period running from October to January.
