How to request biological data

Our Information Request Service is available for use by Fife Council and Fife partnerships, as well as other local and national organisations, professionals and members of the public. Requested information can be made available to support development planning assessments, decision-making and related activities/projects, assist with education, research, or conservation.    

If you would like to receive species data or information on habitats or designated sites for a location in Fife, please complete and return an Information Service Request Form. Fife Nature Records Centre operates a charging policy for the provision of biological information, where the data is requested in relation to a commercial activity. See below for details of our Current Charges.  

Fife Nature Records Centre's database holds, analyses, correlates and interprets all of our data, and supports the production of species distribution, habitat and designated sites maps, using ArcGIS.
