OSF Board

Membership of Orkney Sustainable Fisheries is open to any active fishermen working in Orkney waters. Board members are elected on an open application basis with members co-opted to ensure widespread industry representation from each of the local sectors:  static gear, scallop dredging, scallop diving, demersal fisheries, hand-lined mackerel, shellfish processing, live shellfish exports and local representative organisations.  The Chairman is appointed by the Board with this being endorsed by Marine Scotland (MS).  The mechanism for appointing the Chair and their term in office will be determined in line with MSs national framework for IFGs.

Board meetings are held quarterly with these being advertised on this website as well as the Marine Scotland IFG website.
