The Kingfisher Fortnightly Bulletin
The Kingfisher Fortnightly Bulletin which has been funded partly by the Scottish Government provides essential information on offshore oil and gas operations.
The Kingfisher Fortnightly Bulletin contains information about potential fishing hazards posed by the offshore oil and gas, subsea cable, renewable energy and marine aggregates industries, including information such as seismic survey operations, seabed activity, field developments, rig moves, suspended well amendments, installation schedules, possible seabed hazards, deployment of buoys and more.
It is also used to notify fishermen of updates to other Kingfisher publications and new products as they become available.
For over 25 years, The Bulletin has been supplying information to fishermen to help reduce the likelihood of conflict, and to impact and improve the safety of fishing vessels and their crews fishing in areas of development.
The Bulletin is distributed bi-weekly in both paper and electronic formats. It can be received through the post, via email or viewed on the Kingfisher website. The paper copy is to be phased out following the introduction of an enhanced electronic version in 2020.
New version of FishSAFE unit
The much enhanced latest version of the FishSAFE unit are now available. This version includes 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.
