The government has no plans at present to establish further pilot projects involving fishing with electricity. During the preparation of the report noted in the question, field studies were undertaken that involved the use and operation of commercial fishing vessels. The government therefore considers that this work has collected the information required at present to assist the consideration of policy on this matter. Should further or different information be required the government will consider additional research activity, which may again involve the use of commercial fishing vessels.
Marine Scotland has met with the Razor Fisheries Forum twice in 2014 to discuss licencing arrangements for the fishery and will meet with them again at a razor stakeholder event at the end of March 2015.
