ALMOST 7,000 tonnes of Scottish Label Rouge salmon made its way to France last year – 23 years after the French government first bestowed the mark of distinction upon it.
A NEW report by the Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) has concluded that a lack of experience was the main explanation for an 18-year-old crewman on a scallop dredger losing his hand.
THE MAIB has attributed the death of a Shetland fisherman last March in part to a lack of training and the consumption of narcotics.
THE fisherman who died after falling into the sea off Shetland on Tuesday has been named as Joshua Aryeetey.
THE Banff-based fisherman who fell into the sea about 20 miles west of Shetland has died, reports the BBC.
