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; and
  • 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. 

Once approved by the Board, minutes for the current year can be downloaded from this web page. Past minutes can be obtained from the Department. For further information about the QSMB, please telephone +44 1624 685837.
