It is YOUR fishery
The Firth of Clyde is a public fishery, that is managed on your behalf by the Scottish Government. By signing the Charter you will show them
that you care about how it is managed and that will help them to take the management steps necessary to deliver a Firth of Clyde fishery
managed in the public interest.
Support Clyde 2020
Over a number of years COAST and SIFT have worked to get the issue of the state of the Clyde onto the Scottish Government’s agenda. The
Scottish Government responded by launching Clyde 2020, which aims to create and deliver a new vision for the Clyde. Richard Lochhead
cabinet secretary for the environment has publicly stated: ‘My vision for the Clyde Basin is for a healthy and thriving marine ecosystem that
supports sustainable fishing, tourism and leisure while offering protection to the fragile natural habitats’. Please help us turn that visionary
statement into reality.
SIFT plans to recover the Firth of Clyde Fishery
SIFT is developing a positive model of fishery governance for the Firth of Clyde which aims to recover the diversity, strength and productivity of the Firth of Clyde fishery. SIFT needs support for this model if is to stand a chance of being approved by the Scottish Government. The model fishery is designed to deliver the outcomes set out in the Clyde Charter. Your support for the Clyde Charter will help guarantee success.
