Public announcement.

SAMS are carrying out an experiment today and tomorrow in Ardmucknish Bay, where a red dye is being released to simulate a leaking oil pipeline and the reactionary process from PhD students who are training to work in that field.

The harmless dye will be slowly released into the centre of Ardmucknish Bay over a period of four hours on two consecutive days (Wednesday 6th and Thursday 7th September 2017). The purpose is a training exercise for a cohort of PhD students from NEXUSS CDT.

The students will use a combination of robotic platforms, sensors and ocean tidal models to find the source.

Due to underwater activities being carried out in the vicinity of the simulation by both divers and Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, we would ask, where possible that vessels in the area try and steer clear of the area being worked in. SAMS' own vessel 'Calanus' will be in the immediate vicinity and can give a clear indication of where the event is taking place.

The following local services have been informed of the event being carried out¬
Local Police
Oban Airport
Scottish Natural Heritage, Oban Marine Officer
SEPA
Argyll and Bute Council marine team
HM Coastguard in Oban
Dunstaffnage Marina

Should you need to contact SAMS during the Wednesday and Thursday of the field work, the local contact will be Anuschka Miller, Office 01631 559300.

Some fantastic pictures from Ullapool courtesy of Living SeasWhen the boats were out for the fishing competition, we held crabbing at Ullapool harbour and were joined by SSACN Outreach who did angling taster sessions and the shark tagging team had a marquee full of shark facts and activities.

Thanks to Ullapool Harbour for letting us use the harbour and marquee, Tamara Lawton for teaching everyone to make crab lines and everyone that came along and joined in. Including 'Sammy' the seal.

Any colour but the light blue ones. Grey, buff and dark blue all good. What shirts do you have left in XL and how much Ian Burrett?

Let's get the original blue we had for the first sharkatag it's still goin strong all the others have had there Day

T shirts but not the BUFF coloured ones produced for sharkatag let’s get some good ones done please 👍

I still have twenty of those shirts left

To be honest t shirts aside . Soft toys are good to take home for smaller kids as a present

I found I have all of them and only the original blue has stood the test of time , all the others are dead it's been washed that much you can hardly make out the print , all the others either shrunk or fell to bits

OMG style Gurus in the Angling community - bring back the retro look bobble hat n wellies 😄😄
