David John McRobbie, the current European Programmes Coordinator for Fisheries is set to leave the Council at the end of the month (January 2016) to take up a new post with the Don Fishing Company. This will be a big loss to the NESFLAG team but we would like to wish DJ all the best in his new job. 

David-John joined the Council in November 2012 and worked as Fisheries Project Officer before taking responsibility in managing the Aberdeenshire European Fisheries Fund until the programme closed in December 2015.

The launch of the new European fisheries funding programme in Aberdeenshire will be delayed until a replacement Coordinator has been recruited.

For any general enquiries about the new EMFF fund or if you would like to submit an Expression of Interest. Please email a member of the NESFLAG team: nesflag@aberdeenshire.gov.uk or call Martin Brebner direct 07769956492.
