Fishing Safely in Changing European Waters 2016-2019

Provision of FishSAFE Information, the Kingisher Fortnightly Bulletin and the Yellow Card, development of new terminology and symbology for oil and gas hazards during and after decommissioning and provision of enhanced images of such hazards form part of the project.

It incorporates a review of criteria to include a pipeline span in FishSAFE Information and an Options Study on the possible union of projects to give fshermen information about oishore hazards relating to the oil and gas, subsea cables and renewables industries.

The project will enhance the safety of fshermen and help reduce the risk of damage to fshing vessels, their gear and to oil and gas infrastructure. It will also reduce the risk of harm to the environment.

The European Union through the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund will provide £145,00 towards the costs of the project and the Scottish Government will fund part of the costs. The European Union and the Scottish Government have also provided part of the costs of the FishSAFE unit.
