Shetland Island, Scotland fishermen, forced out of the industry by fishing quotas, are being offered IT training as a path to new careers. The European Union, through the Sea Fish Industry Authority, is giving the Shetland Fisheries Training Association funds to offer IT training for the international qualification IC3. The training will also be offered to fish-processing workers, who might lose their jobs through the decommissioning. Around 200 fishermen will be decommissioned on islands.
