SIFIDS - Scottish Inshore Fisheries Integrated Data Systems - Project Overview.

 



Scottish Inshore Fisheries Integrated Data Systems Project (SIFDS)

To enhance sustainability and foster resilience within Scotland’s inshore fishing communities an effective system of collecting and sharing relevant data is required.

To support business decisions made by vessel owners as well as informing fisheries managers and those involved in marine planning it will be vital to collect a range of information which will provide a robust understanding of fishing activity, the economic value of the sector and its importance within local communities.
