Kingfisher Information Services

Kingfisher Information Services is a free information resource that provides fishers with the location of surface and subsea hazards around the coasts of the UK and Northern Europe so that fishers can safely operate at sea.

Kingfisher Information Services (Kingfisher) works with all offshore industries in order to bring the latest news and most accurate information directly into the hands of fishers. The industries Kingfisher works with include:

  • oil and gas;
  • subsea cable;
  • renewable energy; and
  • marine aggregates.

Kingfisher has been providing the fishing industry with important information regarding subsea structures and the seabed for over 50 years.

All information is completely free for fishers to download and use.
