About Us


The Scottish Shark Tagging Programme (SSTP) is an ongoing programme run by the Scottish Sea Angling Conservation Network (SSACN). It is a citizen lead project our main goals are to gather data on the various shark, skate and ray stocks in Scottish waters, utilising volunteer sea anglers who ‘tag’ the various species and to raise the awareness of the need for their conservation through an outreach programme.
