Organization profile

The Institute for Biodiversity and Freshwater Conservation was established in 2012 to support freshwater biodiversity management through research, training and education. The IBFC specialises in Molecular Genetic Research to aid in the conservation and management of all biodiversity in rivers and lochs, including fish stocks.  Based in the heart of the Highlands and Islands the IBFC is uniquely placed to work with local communities, freshwater and fisheries managers, businesses and government agencies to provide scientific support to protect and conserve freshwater biodiversity and manage sustainable wild fisheries.
