OUR VISION

HOW FIS BEGAN 

As part of its 2011 manifesto commitment, the Scottish Government pledged to investigate the potential of establishing a Scottish ‘Centre of Expertise for Fisheries Management’ to provide sound advice, based on applied research, to inform policy and practice in the management of Scottish fisheries.

The result, after extensive consultation with the fisheries sector, was the formation of Fisheries Innovation Scotland.

FIS has a range of members including representatives from the fishing industry, government organisations, processing and retail sectors, and environmental NGOs.

FIS is funded by its members, and has been supported by the Scottish Government, the European Fisheries Fund and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.
