Fishing is an integral part of the Shetland economy, but as part of the EU, vessels from all over the EU are allowed to fish in Shetland waters, of course the reverse is true and Shetland vessels are able to fish in other EU waters. Overall we believe that control of Shetlands rich fishing grounds are best managed by the Shetland people.
