Lerwick Port Authority’s commitment to the fishing industry is underlined in the latest in the Land in Shetland series of videos promoting the islands’ fish markets and their advantages to the sector from their frontline location.

Investment by the Authority is designed to meet all the industry’s requirements and encourage its use of the facilities and services. Chief Executive, Captain Calum Grains, recognising the vital importance of the sector to the port and Shetland, cites its construction of Mairs Pier and the state-of-the-art whitefish market as recent examples of fantastic and superb additions to the infrastructure.

With the port at the forefront of the industry, Captain Grains states the Authority must ensure it stays there.

The campaign by Shetland Islands Council, the Authority and local partners spells out its message against a background of concerns about energy prices and carbon footprint, with savings on fuel, time, carbon and costs to be made by landing in Shetland with its proximity to grounds.

Industry representatives are invited to visit the partners on stand 25 at Scottish Fishing Expo in Aberdeen from 12-13 May to learn more about the benefits of delivering catches at Lerwick, Scalloway and Cullivoe.
