The Aquaculture and Fisheries (Scotland) Act 2013 placed a number of new duties on DSFBs relating to openness and accountability.
All meetings of the Board, including Board meetings and the Annual Meeting of Qualified Proprietors, are now open to the public as observers, although some items of business at Board meetings may be taken in private.
In addition, there will also be an Annual Public Meeting, separate from the Annual Meeting of Proprietors, at which members of the public can participate fully.
The dates and details of forthcoming meetings can be found here.
The minutes of Board meetings can be viewed on-line. Hard copies can also be obtained from the Clerk on request.
