 Dear friends and supporters,

Please register your support for the Fair Isle community and a marine protected area for the waters around Fair Isle, please do so via the website's Guestbook ( "

"The Fair Isle Marine Environment and Tourism Initiative (FIMETI) website at has now been completely updated and includes a wealth of additional information. The website is well worth a visit and spending some time to read with interesting text and photos throughout.

Also hot off the press on the FIMETI News page ( is a forthcoming stakeholders meeting between the Fair Isle community and fishermen's representatives on 24th March, plus some great upcoming cultural and environmental events to look forward to, including 'Da Fishing Hands' premiere of music and song on 23rd May and a Fair Isle Maritime Festival of supporting events from 22nd to 25th May. The Clipperton Project is planning a scientific and educational expedition to Fair Isle in June.

With 100% community support, Fair Isle is very pleased to announce that representatives from the Shetland Fishermen's Association and the Scottish Fishermen's Federation will be visiting the isle next Monday, 24th March, for discussions on the Fair Isle MPA proposal. The community is looking forward to seeing them and determining common ground on the issue of sustainable management measures for Fair Isle waters.

FIMETI's latest annual newsletter 'Making Waves' - with full news and updates regarding Fair Isle's continuing quest for a Marine Protected Area - will be published on the Newsletters page of the website shortly ( "

Many thanks from the Fair Isle Community.
