The purpose of Scottish Fisheries Coordination Centre (SFCC) is to promote and support evidence-based conservation of Scotland’s native fish and fisheries. To achieve this aim SFCC provides a mechanism for its members to standardise data collection through the provision of protocols and databases. SFCC facilitates cross-Scotland scientific projects and provides data to inform national policy decisions and local management decisions. SFCC members also benefit from an annual training programme, provision of mapping data and development of field data collection tools.
