President’s Message 2017
The result of the EU referendum on 23 June 2016 took everybody by surprise including the fishing industry. It does present our sector with some exciting prospects, what we are calling a “sea of opportunity” – but more on that later.
First of all I would like to pay tribute to Ross Dougal who has had to step down as President due to ill health. He was an effective and hardworking President and we wish him a speedy recovery. We also look forward to his return as chairman of SFF Services in due course.
I would also like to welcome the Fife Fishermen’s Association into the membership of the SFF. Our strength lies in the diversity of our representation, both in terms of fisheries type and geography.
