Isle of Man Queen Scallop Management Board
The Isle of Man Queen Scallop Management Board (QSMB) was established in 2010 to advise the IOM Government on the management of the Isle of Man Queen Scallop (Queenie) fishery to ensure that:
- it is both profitable and sustainable in the long term
- it is fished in accordance with Marine Stewardship Council principles where possible
- members receive advice on conservation measures
Its members include processors and fishermen from around the Irish Sea plus representatives from DEFA including the Minister for the Department. It has access to independent scientific advice from Bangor University and has an independent chairman.
