The State of Scotland’s Seas

Towards the end of summer 2007 the Scottish Government asked Fisheries Research Services ( FRS), the Scottish Environment Protection Agency ( SEPA) and Scottish Natural Heritage ( SNH) to collaborate and report on the state of Scotland’s seas.

This report includes contextual information and an initial data inventory and aims to inform the development of the Scottish Marine Bill in 2008. Development of a fuller State of Scotland’s Seas is underway with the intention of publishing this in 2010.

The first integrated assessment of the state of UK seas was undertaken in 2002 and the Scottish marine community contributed to that report. The Scottish marine environment and the diverse array of animals and plants that it supports is an invaluable national and international resource.

The report can be viewed at http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2008/04/03093608/0
