FishSAFE Unit in

Since its launch there has been strong demand for the new FishSAFE Unit.

270 units have been sold at the price of £529 each plus VAT.

This price has been made possible by a grant from The European Fisheries Fund and the Scottish Ministers and by services provided without charge by FLTC Services Limited a not for profit company. FLTCS is supported by The Scottish Fishermen's Federation,The National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations and Oil and Gas UK. The company is funded by OGUK and by some of their member companies.

FishSafe Unit

The heavily subsidised price applies to the first production run of the units only. Once the first units have been sold any further units ordered will not benefit from the grant awarded and are likely to cost considerably more than £529. Click here for further information about the unit.
