Project Take the Bait is Calling all Whelk Fishermen

Following on from the launch of the exciting new partnership project Take The Bait looking to improve the environmental performance of mesh plastic bags used by shellfish fishermen and in seafood processing, we’re looking for whelk fishermen to have their say by completing a short questionnaire.

Calling all whelk fishermen!

Does your whelk bait come in plastic mesh bags?  If so, please help us redesign the bags and reduce their environmental impact by filling out this short questionnaire here -

Answer all the questions to be in with a chance of winning £100.

Thank you!

More information on the project can be found here.  Or contact Claire Pescod at Macduff Shellfish on or Lloyd Nelmes from Sea Trust on
