Organisation profile

The UHI Rivers and Lochs Institute (RLI) was established in 2012 to support freshwater biodiversity management through research, training and education. The RLI 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 RLI 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. As part of the Research Hub at Inverness College UHI, the Institute connects with other disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, undertaking multidisciplinary research and supporting postgraduate research students in an innovative research environment.
