Who Are We?

i) To signpost training opportunities to the onshore fish and shellfish sector in Scotland,
ii) To encourage skills development and career progression,
iii) To seek funding to support training needs,
iv) To promote cooperation in the provision of fish and shellfish training across Scotland, and
v) To provide a voice to fish and shellfish employers in Scotland over training issues.
