URGENT! COVID-19 – SURVEY OF THE IMPACT ON THE FISHERIES BUSINESS SECTOR

Marine Scotland has asked for our help in promoting participating a wide ranging survey into the challenges facing the Recreational Fisheries sector during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please share widely and encourage maximum participation.  The message states:

Dear Stakeholder,

Marine Scotland has launched surveys to understand better the challenges faced by marine businesses, including recreational fisheries businesses, as a result of Covid-19.

The surveys, which run until 12 October, ask questions about the financial and operational performance of businesses during the pandemic.

The results will be used to help provide a snapshot of the situation in marine industries and to shape future strategies and policies relating to the recovery response. I would be extremely helpful to have as many responses from the recreational sector, so I would be grateful if you could pass on this information about the survey to potential participants, including for example Fishery Boards, Trusts, Fishery Owners and Angling Clubs.

You might also want to re-tweet information about the survey https://twitter.com/marinescotland/status/1310879807052361728

For further information or if you are having difficulties accessing the survey please email reme.diaz@gov.scot and provide your company name and email address.
