Scientist at work by Keith MutchMarine Scotland Science (MSS) plays is an important part in supporting the Scottish Government's vision of having marine and coastal environments which are clean, healthy, safe, productive and biologically diverse.

MSS undertakes research and provides scientific and technical advice on a number of marine and fisheries issues including aquaculture and fish health, freshwater fisheries, sea fisheries and the marine ecosystem.

The nature of the work is vast and diverse and includes boat and shore based monitoring, laboratory work, building bespoke monitoring equipment and state of the art computer technology and GIS systems to analyse, plot and present the information which is found.

All of the work of Marine Scotland Science is overseen by a Science Advisory Board to assure the independence, impartiality and quality of science that it delivers. In addition, MSS is a member of a number of collaborative scientific initiatives.
