Data Collection Framework - UK work programme

Each year a UK programme of work is drawn up detailing the work to be carried out by the three fisheries laboratories and other organisations such as Seafish. The UK national programme information for 2011 to 2013 and previous years, including text and accompanying tables, is available.

The laboratories are among the leading providers of scientific research and services to government, non-governmental and commercial organisations in the UK. As such, they are responsible for collecting biological data and undertaking research surveys to meet the Data Collection Framework (DCF) requirements:

Seafish, a non-departmental public body, established to promote good quality, sustainable seafood, is commissioned by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to collect data on a range of economic variables covered by the DCF.
