Connecting People and Nature in Scotland  

These are part of what makes Scotland special and are among the country's greatest assets.


Marine Scotland has been involved with this EMFF-funded project which is aimed at involving fishing vessels in Marine Protected Areas monitoring.
This is a joint project between Marine Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage.
The project is managed by Seascope Fisheries Research Ltd, with Charlotte Johnston of Crangon Ltd.

The EMFF project aims to improve our understanding of marine habitats while working in partnership with the Scottish fishing industry. If you are the owner of a fishing vessel and interested in participating in the survey programme further information is available on the Scottish Government EMFF Project webpage.
