Alison Kay skipper James Anderson is taking charge at the Shetland Fishermen’s Association.
He replaces departing chairman Leslie Tait, who will move into a role as honorary president.
Mr Tait has been in charge of the fisherman’s association for the past 13 years.
SFA executive officer Simon Collins said: “We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Leslie, whose knowledge and insight has been invaluable during his tenure.
“James is a fisherman of vast experience and will be an excellent chair of the association as we move into a new era for the industry.”
