The influence of the Lamlash Bay no-take zone, Firth of Clyde, on spatial and temporal variation in the recovery of commercially exploited crustaceans. Carney, W.
Conclusions drawn state that the Lamlash Bay NTZ is boosting lobster biomass within its boundaries and is extremely important in echoing the invaluable contribution of NTZs in restoring and enhancing commercially exploited invertebrate communities.

The effects of Sargassum muticum on fish species composition and population densities within Zostera marina beds. Dry, K.
Thee invasive seaweed, Sargassum muticum was first identified in the UK in the 1973 and has recently been identified off the coast of the Isle of Arran, Scotland. The coasts of this island are host to several eelgrass beds which provide food, protection and nursery habitat for many commercially important fish species, some of which are vulnerable.
