Last year Blue Marine Foundation hosted a one-day Crab and Lobster Symposium attended by a range of scientists, fisheries managers and reps from the catching sector.

Thirty short talks were presented including from CRMG members, covering a wide range of topics in five groups; there were also Q&As and a final open forum. CRMG members spoke about the innovative Western Isles pot limitation scheme, a collaboration between St Andrew’s University and the Western Isles Fishermen’s Association.
