Our Seas Coalition has called for Scotland to ban trawling within 3 miles of the coast to ensure the sustainability of fisheries for the future. The Coalition is made up of various stakeholders including marine ecotourism firms, fishing communities, salmon conservationists and others.
There are other fishing groups that oppose the ban as they feel the current system of voluntary closures and other measures will suffice.
