S5W-20692: Jamie Halcro Johnston (Highlands and Islands)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 19 December 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on what action it is taking to set a fisheries landings target.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 17 January 2019

The Scottish Government remains committed to increasing the amount of fish landed into Scottish ports and to improving the competitiveness of the seafood supply chain.

The Scottish Government has consulted widely on proposals for new economic link arrangements and the results of that consultation will be published in due course.

Any new policy measures will ensure that a fair and real economic link exists with all Scottish vessels working from our ports, which will provide long term benefits to our Scottish fishing communities.
