#ClimateChange & #GlobalWarming Report: Fishing leaders have warned the outlook for the industry is “truly frightening” as a new report revealed more than half of all fishing grounds could be lost to the fleet by 2050.

The worst-case scenario outlined in the Spatial Squeeze in Fisheries report suggests 56% of Scottish waters could be closed to fishing boats.

The report, produced for the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation (SFF) and the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations, warns increasing offshore renewable energy projects – such as wind and tidal power schemes – is impacting on where boats can fish.

An expansion of marine protected areas will also impact on fishing waters, the report adds.

It said the “competition for marine space needs to be carefully managed” to ensure new industries, such as green energy, can exist alongside the traditional fishing sector.

Elspeth Macdonald, chief executive of the SFF, said as it stands, “offshore renewable energy generation and marine conservation are being prioritised over fishing”.

Even if the worst-case scenario is not realised, the report said 46% of Scottish waters could be off limits to fishermen by 2050.

“The report shows that expansion of both offshore renewable energy generation and marine conservation are being prioritised over fishing, despite fishing’s value in producing low-carbon, healthy and sustainable food, contributing to our food security and supporting thousands of jobs in our coastal communities.”
