Is there early evidence of the Lamlash Bay No Take Zone providing scallop fishery benefits?, Howarth L.

The possibility of scallop fishery benefits of the recently designated Lamlash Bay NTZ was investigated with dive surveys and dissections. There was no difference in adult scallop abundance, but age, size, biomass and juvenile abundance were all greater in the NTZ. Further monitoring is needed to detect scallop stock increases.
