The Scottish Whitefish Producers Association (SWFPA) is the largest Association of fishermen in the UK, its member’s activities account for a significant proportion of Scottish and UK landings both in terms of volume and income. Our members are the principle actors in the UK Nephrops and whitefish sectors.

The Association is fronted by its Chief Executive (Mike Park). Chairman Davy Milne and Vice Chairman Bill Wiseman are the elected face of the Association; they link closely with Association members to create joined-up policy output through recently created sector specific committees.

The Association maintains a network of branches across the most active Scottish fishing ports.

The Association supports its member’s activities by operating at the highest political level.
