neil1As part of the Scottish Wildlife Trust’s Marine Protected Areas campaign, journalist and photographer Jamie Grant has been to meet a variety of people who depend on the sea for their livelihood and capture their stories on a  series of videos.

On one of these, Neil McIntosh who runs sea angling trips in Sutherland on his boat Rachael Clare gives his views regarding what once was and what the current situation is; He believes that Marine Protected Areas can protect vital habitats for fish and help to restore Scotland’s seas.

The diversity of life at sea is under threat. Marine Protected Areas can help. They have been tried and tested across the globe as a means of safeguarding important marine habitats and wildlife. Now Scotland has the opportunity to protect its amazing marine wildlife.

As part of a new plan for managing Scotland’s seas, the Scottish Government is running a consultation for new ‘Nature Conservation’ Marine Protected Areas to protect and enhance nationally important marine habitats and species.
