Scottish Creel Fishermen's Federation  

About SCFF
Creel boats make up 74% of Scotland’s inshore commercial fishing fleet and generated around 38.1 million for the Scottish Economy in 2012 (Marine Scotland analytical unit figures). Despite this the Scottish inshore creel fishing sector has historically been overlooked and underrepresented at a policy making level. This changed on the 13th of September 2012 in Inverness when the Scottish Creel Fishermen’s Federation was formed, giving creelers the chance to unite and make their voices heard at a national level. Ten Fishermen’s Associations from around Scotland’s coast make up the Federation and SCFF aims to raise its profile and accessibility to all inshore creelers.

The formation of SCFF has been welcomed by Marine Scotland, and many community groups. We look forward to engaging with these bodies and others to promote the creel fishing industry, sell our world class products, and ensure Scotland’s inshore fisheries are well managed, economically and environmentally sustainable.
The formation of the SCFF would not have been possible without the hard work and support of many people, we would like to thank Marine Scotland for their invaluable contribution towards facilitating the formation of the SCFF.
