Aquaculture - Inactive and deregistered sites (27.05.2024)

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

Point data identifying the location of finfish or shellfish farms around Scotland from the Fish Health Inspectorate Aquadat database. This includes fishery sites which are ponds or other installation where farmed fish are stocked for recreational fishing (either private or commercial). The data includes the three categories: Active: is the status of a site that is stocked or fallow with the intention of restocking in the foreseeable future. Inactive: is the status of a site that is unlikely to be stocked in the foreseeable future. Deregistered: is the status applied to a site that is no longer used for the purpose of fish or shellfish production; the lease has been surrendered.

ECOMMAS Proportion Dolphin Detection-Positive Days (2013-2016 time aware content)

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

ECOMMAS is a long-term, on-going study into how underwater noise generated by offshore industry impacts the distribution of dolphins and porpoises in the Scottish North Sea. 
Acoustic recorders (C-PODs and SM2Ms) are deployed at 30 sites across 10 locations along the east coast.  They record underwater noise and count echolocation clicks to measure dolphin and porpoise presence and absence.  They are deployed in the spring and are recovered after ~ 4 months.  In 2015 and 2016, a second deployment was issued in July/August.

Data is presented as detection-positive days (DPD) and detection-positive hours (DPH) for both species.

DPD = The detection of echolocation clicks per day
(1 = Detection-positive, 0 = Detection-negative)

DPH = The number of hours echolocation clicks are detected per day

Nall = Total number of clicks detected per day

Ndays = Total number of days recorded

PorpDPH_median = Median porpoise detection-positive hours for each site

DolDPH_median = Median dolphin detection-positive hours for each site

Proportion_PorpDPD = Proportion of porpoise detection-positive days (out of total days recorded, Ndays)

Proportion_DolDPD = Proportion of dolphin detection-positive days (out of total days recorded, Ndays)

Data has been prepared as ArcGIS maps showing median DPH and proportion of DPD for both species across all 30 sites.  It has also been converted to be viewed on the NMPi, and for direct download as a spread sheet (.csv)
