Fisheries Information Notices (FINs)

The SFPA issues FINs on fisheries legislation in order to provide interpretation of some of the more complex elements of the legislation. The contents of such FINs are provided as a guide only and are intended to enhance access to information for the fishing industry.

The purpose of the FIN is to provide the information in a manageable form and  in doing so it is limited to the essential elements of information. They should always be read along with the governing legislation.

Whilst every effort is made in preparing material no responsibility is accepted by or on behalf of the SFPA for any errors, omissions or misleading statements in the documents.

 We welcome feedback and will endeavour to improve or provide clarification FIN the information notices.
