Scotland’s Aquaculture Website

Scotland’s Aquaculture Website is a resource developed in partnership by FSS, SEPA, The Crown Estate and Marine Scotland to provide access to a range of aquaculture information in Scotland.

FSS publish Official Control results from the Biotoxin, Phytoplankton and E.coli monitoring programmes on a weekly basis and the website serves as access to all historic shellfish monitoring results.

Data is fully searchable within the website and can also be downloaded to Excel format to allow user interrogation of results.

Scotland’s Aquaculture Website also enables spatial analysis due to the integrated mapping software. This function provides the user with the ability to view classified shellfish harvesting areas, representative monitoring points and sample collection points.
