COAST MPA Management Consultation Response

COAST response to the Scottish Government Consultation on the management of inshore Special Areas of Conservation and Marine Protected Areas.

The Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST) has been campaigning for measures to recover marine life and fish stocks in the Firth of Clyde since 1995. We established the Lamlash Bay No Take Zone in 2008 and were the main driving force behind the designation of the South Arran Marine Protected Area in 2014. In the same year we were presented with a Nature of Scotland Award for marine conservation.
