Last night, the BBC’s Coast programme featured an article about counting fish in the sea, including some of the history – and science -behind fisheries research.

Marine Scotland scientists Coby Needle and John Dunn were interviewed with Coby explaining how fish are aged and how the process of assessing fish stocks is done. John spoke about the story of the Fishery Research Vessel F.R.S. Explorer, built to the order of the Scottish Home Department and launched in 1955.
