EID chip's

Enforcement proposal: Marine Scotland Compliance can use their RIB's to conduct gear marking assessments, regardless of the presence of EID chips. Infact the current proposal to only mark one buoy in each fleet will mean that at best only half of all buoy's will contain a chip making this a very inefficient and labour intensive mechanism.

Why the contribution is important

the idea that gear "identified at the time could be lifted and seized", is wholly inappropriate. (imagine the scenario where someone’s buoy with it's electronic tag was removed just prior to the arrival of the "gear removal team". The whole notion that gear with one buoy missing can be forcefully removed with no notice, without prior consultation, without the gears owners and without consultation with the local fishing community is ridiculous.
