RFS

Certifying high standards of crew welfare and responsible catching practices

The Responsible Fishing Scheme ensures best practice from both vessel and skipper on 5 core areas:

  • Safety, health and welfare
  • Training and professional development
  • The vessel and its mission
  • Care of the catch
  • Care for the environment

SWFPA fully supports the scheme and appointed James Buchan as internal auditor last March to assist our vessels with joining the Scheme. If you have any questions regarding RFS, please contact James on 07958110879 or james@swfpa.com.
