Aberdeen Fish Producers Organisation
The Aberdeen Fish Producer’s Organisation (AFPO) was set up on the 10th October 1973 and as such is the oldest Producer Organisation in Scotland. The AFPO have provided a range of services to Scotlands fishermen ever since. Our speciality is in the area of quota management, representation and marketing for our fishermen and their produce. We currently have 20 member vessels from Fife to Buckie and focus predominantly on whitefish species with some Nephrops landings. The main grounds our vessels fish are in the North Sea with some activity on the seas to the West of Scotland. The annual value of the catch by member vessels is around £10 million pounds. The vessels in membership are mainly of the pair seine and twin rig type. These vessels range in size from 9m to 45m. AFPO sits on the board of Seafood Scotland and also chairs the Scottish Association of Fish Producers Organisations, and has input into many other bodies both nationally and locally.
