Cruise Inventory

Jointly supported by BODC and the Marine Environmental Data and Information Network

The cruise inventory is a catalogue of UK research vessel activities dating from 1947 to the present day. Currently, it contains entries for 17054 cruises from 778 individual ships. It also contains details of non-UK marine research activities in British territorial waters.

It is a valuable resource for scientists, programme managers and data managers providing information on who has collected what, where and when, in addition to details of measurements taken and samples collected.

Our Aim

The Regional Inshore Fisheries Groups (RIFGs) aim to improve the management of inshore fisheries in the 0-12 nautical mile zone of Scottish waters, and to give commercial inshore fishermen a strong voice in wider marine management developments.
