FishSAFE uses the Kingfisher UKCS database which is collated and managed by Common Data Access (CDA). This database is updated regularly to ensure a complete set of information on potential hazards.

FishSafe displays the following data types extracted from KIS-UKCS:

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
