In 2007 Sargassum muticum was included in NatureScot's Species Action Framework as an actively invasive species with high potential for adverse impact on important biodiversity features. This report aimed to identify high risk areas on the Scottish coastline between the Solway Firth and the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, where S. muticum was most likely to establish.
