Up to 125 new jobs will be created in the Scottish fishing industry through two new initiatives.

Grieg Seafood Hjaltland last week opened a new £4.2m factory extension that it claimed would eventually lead to the creation of 70 new jobs on Shetland.

Meanwhile, the European Fisheries Fund has handed £2.9m of funding to Scotland to invest in new technology and help the industry break into new markets in Europe. The cash will lead to the creation of 55 of the new jobs.
