The Fishing News Awards 2019

Fishing News is pleased to announce that the 2019 Fishing News Awards will be held in Aberdeen on the evening of Thursday, 16th May 2019.

The event is dedicated to shining a spotlight on the achievements, expertise and innovation in the UK and Ireland’s commercial fishing industries during 2018.

The Doubletree Aberdeen Treetops hotel will once again be our venue, and it promises to be another night to remember. This year’s proceedings will be hosted by Scottish comedian Des Clarke, who will MC the awards and provide after-dinner entertainment.
