The Fish and Fisheries Advisory Group (FFAG)’s role has particular reference when it comes to:
- helping to inform the process of setting priorities for action in future river basin planning cycles;
- understanding the status of fish stocks in Scotland;
- reviewing and improving our fish classification results;
- identifying areas where further research and development is required;
- ensuring that the views of a wide range of relevant interest groups are taken into account in the RBMP process; providing feedback from the work of the group within its sector.
