Investigating spatial trends in biodiversity around the South Arran MPA. Jones, I.

The South Arran marine protected area (MPA) on the West coast of Scotland contains one of only three no-take zones within the UK and has strict management plans for zonation within the MPA. Two years on from it’s formation, this study looks to use baited remote underwater surveys to investigate the fish assemblage and biodiversity within the MPA.
