Welcome to the Regional IFG website
Regional Inshore Fisheries Groups (RIFGs) aim to improve the management of inshore fisheries in the 0-6 nautical mile zone of Scottish waters, and to give commercial inshore fishermen a strong voice in wider marine management developments.
The Regional IFG network includes:
- North & East Coast RIFG
- West Coast RIFG
- Outer Hebrides RIFG
- Orkney Management Group
- Shetland Shellfish Management Organisation
Key documents for the RIFGs, detailing their structure & functions, decision making process etc, are available on the right-hand side of the page.
The RIFGs are non-stautory bodies and were established in 2016. They succeed the six Inshore Fisheries Groups (IFGs) that were formerly in place from 2013-16 (more information is available here).
