About us

We manage and regulate the fisheries for shellfish within Shetland’s six mile limit. This is done by issuing licences and implementing regulations and other measures to ensure the long-term sustainability of these fisheries. SSMO promotes the recovery of shellfish stocks through stock enhancement and other management measures.
