Welcome to the Regional IFG website
The Scottish Regional Inshore Fisheries Groups (RIFGs) are non-statutory bodies that aim to improve the management of Scotland’s inshore fisheries out to six nautical miles, 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 commenced in April 2016, succeeding the Inshore Fisheries Groups (IFGs) that were in place from 2013-16 with a new regional structure. More information about the previous IFG structure can be found at IFGs (2013-16).
