About FITA

Who are we?

It was formed to carry on the business and activities of the Fish Industry Training Association (Highlands & Islands) in succession to that Association which had been formed in November 1990 as a result of the merger of the Highlands and Island Fish Processors Association and FITA the Association.

It is a specialist organisation focussed on providing and promoting training, learning, skills and qualifications along with technical advice, resources and services, especially for companies, business and individuals in all sectors of the fish industry.
