It’s the moment you have all been waiting for, New Year, New Course and Fully Funded, Limited places.



FISHING INTO THE FUTURE : THE BUSINESS OF FISHING

Join us on our celebrated Business of Fishing course based at the rural setting of Thainstone House in Inverurie near Aberdeen.

Business of Fishing 26th—28th February 2019, FULLY FUNDED Essential training for fishermen

• Fisheries Science • Fisheries Management • Fisheries Economics

This industry-supported 3-day residential workshop seeks to bring all who attend on a journey into the what, when and why of fisheries science and management.

You will work with other like-minded professionals in a neutral setting to explore and interrogate the processes involved, share insights and build understanding away from the pressures of fishery regulation.

The course has been built with the help of fishermen: it will meet your needs by complimenting your current knowledge whilst providing you with practical opportunities to go deep ‘under the bonnet’ of fisheries science and management.

We hope it will stretch your thinking: no in-depth scientific knowledge is needed to enrol; just come with an open mind and a willing spirit.

This course is focused on the science and management that underpins quota-based fisheries – those fisheries reliant on scientific advice from ICES. All fishermen, from all sectors are welcome – this is great opportunity to learn from each other, whatever sector or area of Scotland you are operating in.
