Initially set up in 1948, the Marine Scotland Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory employs around 40 staff at its main site in Pitlochry on the shore of Loch Faskally and outstations in Montrose and Shieldaig. Our dedicated team conducts science that supports national fisheries management and conservation. Staff work on a range of fish species in both freshwater and coastal environments, but primarily Atlantic salmon and Brown (sea) trout.
