organisation profile

The research undertaken by Marine Scotland Science (MSS) involves time-limited projects that are required to meet an agreed schedule of milestones and targets consistent with Marine Scotland's aims. Our research goals are:
  • Understanding the functioning of aquatic ecosystems
  • Understanding and quantifying human effects on aquatic ecosystems, particularly on living resources and the aquatic environment
  • Evaluating options for sustainable fishing and aquaculture

The main Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory is in Pitlochry with additional manned outstations in Montrose (Angus) and Shieldaig (Wester Ross), with fish traps on upper Deeside.

Current priority areas for research to underpin development of policy include:

  • Interactions between marine renewable energy and migratory fishes
  • Interactions between coastal aquaculture and wild salmon and sea trout
  • Effects of change in thermal environment on salmonids and development of mitigation options
  • Protecting and enhancing spring salmon
  • Deriving conservation limits for salmon populations
