This is an area of vital interest to Scotland. After centuries of environmentally benign exploitation and husbanding of resources, Scotland’s fishing industry has been devastated by ideological intervention, mismanagement and overfishing by the European Union. The result has been the loss of 100,000 jobs and an annual loss of more than £1,500 million per year to Scotland’s economy. The SDA proposes complete withdrawal from this Brussels-controlled lunacy.
