Spatial management for bottom trawling and dredging in Scotland

Spatial management for bottom trawling and dredging in Scotland

Bally is the National Coordinator of the Scottish Creel Fisherman’s Federation (SCFF). As the son of a trawlerman and a member of a rural coastal community in Scotland, Bally has witnessed the social, economic and ecological impacts of bottom trawling and dredging first-hand. Bally is calling on the Scottish government to introduce spatial management for bottom trawling and dredging to create trawl- and dredge-free areas in which fisheries and ecosystems can recover.
