Database

FishSAFE data is derived from the National Data Repository managed for the Oil & Gas Authority (OGA), and other datasets are collated and managed by Common Data Access (CDA). The data is updated regularly to ensure a complete set of information on potential hazards.

FishSafe displays the following data types from their sub-contractors, Schlumberger and by the Sea Fish Industry Authority:

Surface Features

  • Platforms
  • FPSOs
  • Loading Buoys
  • Permanent marker buoys

Subsea Features

  • Suspended wellheads
  • Production wellheads
  • Manifolds
  • Templates
  • Other significant obstructions, including valves, piles, anchors and major debris
  • Pipelines
  • ‘Significant’ pipeline spans (i.e. over 10m long and 0.8m above the seabed)
  • 500m Safety Zones

New version of FishSAFE unit

The much enhanced latest version of the FishSAFE unit will be available in late spring 2020. This version incudes substantial improvements to provide fishermen with the benefit of a state of the art aid to safety. Previous versions of the unit have proved invaluable with sales of over 300. The European Union and the Scottish Government have awarded grants to support the project.
