A Fishers Eye-View: Gear Use and Recovery in the Scottish Inshore Creel Fishery

This research project, undertaken by St Andrews University is looking to gather information on the use, recovery, and disposal of fishing gear within Scotland's inshore creel fishery. To do this we are asking commercial creel fishers to complete a short online survey which has been developed following concerns raised regarding the amount of fishing gear associated with this currently being deployed. The aim is to gain further insight based on your own experiences at sea and views on this.
The survey is being conducted by the University of St Andrews and is completely anonymous. It takes approximately five minutes to complete and the information vou choose to share will be solelv for academic purposes.
If you are a commercial creel fisher and like to take in the survey, please follow the link below. Participants will be able to opt into prize draw to the value of £50
