For FIMRO it was important to have somewhere that could act as a resource for other community groups interested in setting up their own projects, to be able to share project work with the community and visitors to the island, and to make it easier to collect citizen-science information and sightings.

The Fair Isle Demonstration and Research Marine Protected Area will be an integral part of Fair Isle’s global reputation as a research hub.
A very special place
To visit Fair Isle is to understand the deep connection the island has to its surrounding waters. Situated where the North Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean; it’s hard to determine, at times, where the sea ends and the land begins.
