An extensive flame shell bed (c. 10,000m2) has been discovered in the South Arran Marine Protected Area by local recreational divers/citizen scientists. As only the second known remaining flame shell bed in the Clyde marine region, this is a significant and exciting discovery not just for Arran but for biodiversity interests throughout the whole of Scotland.
