Blue Fin Tuna Stakeholder Workshop
Harris Development Ltd. in conjunction with WI Marine and Environmental Ltd, Aquatera and Fulton Fisheries held a Bluefin Tuna workshop today. The results of the workshop will feed into the "Socio-economic study of a Bluefin Tuna Fishery for the Western Isles". This study has been commissioned by Marine Scotland, with HDL administering and project managing the study. Working with scientific partners we hope a future catch and release fishery will address gaps in data surrounding BFT migration, stock numbers, sea temperature and oceanic current change.
