Abstract

In summer 2003, the usually small directed fishery for the squid Loligoforbesi in the Moray Firth off the northeast coast of Scotland (UK) generated unusually high catches. This fishery, which targets small squid close inshore, ultimately involved over 65 boats. The present short paper reviews the history of this fishery, examines trends over the last 35 years and possible future management issues are briefly reviewed. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V.
