Have your say
We are seeking your views on the designation of Loch Carron possible Marine Protected Area (MPA) – part of Scotland’s Marine Protected Area network.
In 2017, the Loch Carron Urgent Nature Conservation Marine Protected Area was designated under the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010. That urgent designation is temporary and will lapse in May 2019.
The boundary of the Loch Carron possible MPA we’re consulting on now was developed by SNH in discussion with Marine Scotland following new survey work in 2017. It includes maerl beds – another diverse and particularly sensitive seabed habitat – as a feature of the site, together with the flame shell beds.
The consultation on the Loch Carron possible MPA runs from 20 March to 13 June 2018.
Interested? Learn more about the Loch Carron possible MPA at one of our drop-in sessions. All welcome.
