Fishery Research & Protection

Ferguson's has a long and proud reputation for supplying specialist vessels for fishery research and protection duties. The foundation of this specialist sector was laid by the SS Discovery II which was built for the Falklands in 1929.

Since then, Ferguson's has supplied research and protection vessels to a number of Government Marine agencies including the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries & Food and the Scottish Fisheries Protection Agency
