    Supporting projects which help preserve UK fisheries

UK Fisheries Offshore Oil and Gas Legacy Trust Fund Limited (FLTC) is a company with a long term perspective – perpetuity.

Its primary objective is to enhance the safety of fishermen in UK waters by ensuring the provision of information about oil and gas related sea bed structures which might affect fishing.

Our secondary objective is to support projects which help preserve the UK fishery or help manage issues relating to oil and gas infrastructure after decommissioning or cessation of activities.

The company is registered in Scotland and has charitable status. Its members or shareholders are Oil and Gas UK, the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation and the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations. Building on their long standing and close relationship members are working together in what is believed to be the first company in the world formed to provide in perpetuity information for fishermen about oil and gas structures.
