Commenting ahead of crucial talks tomorrow between the EU and NorwayTavish ScottTavish Scott which aim to finalise the catching opportunities in 2013 for shared fish stocks, Scottish Liberal Democrat fisheries spokesperson Tavish Scott MSP said:

“These are vital talks for local fishermen. We need a constructive, positive and good outcome from these EU/Norway negotiations.
