Scottish Pelagic Industry-Science Data Collection Programme

Project Details

Description of project aims

The Scottish Pelagic Industry-Science Data Collection Programme is a collaboration between SUHI, MSS and SPFA, in which Scottish pelagic vessels voluntarily participate. The programme comprises two parts: the self-sampling scheme, in which vessel crews measure and record the length and weight of fish in the catch; and the co-sampling scheme, whereby vessel crews collect and freeze samples of fish to be brought ashore for biological sampling by scientists at the SUHI and MSS laboratories.
