MFP Publications

We have produced a number of publications, much of which is available electronically via the table below. MFP member e-news updates are sent to all members and funders and are uploaded to the website.

Marine Scotland also have an excellent range of marine and coastal related publications, leaflets and topic sheets both current and those produced by the former Fisheries Research Services (FRS). The Education Zone is also worth checking for photos, posters and links to a wealth of information to help you find out more about the marine environment and fisheries in Scotland.

Follow this link to the National Resources page to find a selection of publications from government and other organisations.
