Jane Sandell

Jane Sandell has been the Quota Manger for the Scottish Fishermen's Organisation for just over five years. After finishing a postgraduate degree in Fisheries Science at the International Fisheries Institute at Hull University, she joined the Yorkshire and Humber Seafood Group, where she managed fisheries development projects for the region. In 2006, Jane joined the Scottish Fishermen's Federation as a Policy Officer, taking the lead on a variety of policy themes including a number of marine spatial planning issues. Although primarily employed to manage the quota for 200 UK registered fishing vessels, a considerable amount of Janes time is spent writing, negotiating and advising on fisheries policy at European, UK and domestic level including taking the Scottish industry lead on the implementation of the new Common Fisheries Policy. In addition to her professional experience, Jane has a good understanding of the trials and tribulations of running demersal fishing vessels.
