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 development of the Inshore Fisheries Groups (IFGs) from 2013 led to the establishment of a new regional structure that commenced in April 2016. The new regional structure has succeeded the IFGs that were formerly in place. More information about the former IFGs can be found at IFGs (2013-16).
