Anchor Lab is aiding the modernisation of Scotland’s inshore fisheries

The Scottish government has announced that electronic monitoring and tracking of vessels is part of a package of measures being taken to protect Scotland’s inshore fleet.

The programme, which will monitor boats in inshore waters, is designed to help establish local fisheries management arrangements. Anchor Lab is proud to have been selected to provide the technology to support the monitoring programme, while renowned marine electrician Woodsons of Aberdeen will lead the installation activity.

Installation work is expected to start in April, initially focusing on deploying to the entire scallop dredge fleet of around 120 vessels in 2020.
