Engaging the Fishing Industry in Marine Environmental Survey and Monitoring – Part 3

Marine Scotland Blog - Fri, 2019-10-11 12:14

Marine Scotland (MS) has been leading this European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) funded project which is aimed at involving fishing vessels in Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) monitoring. This is a joint project between MS and Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH). The project is managed by Seascope Fisheries Research Ltd, with Charlotte Johnston of Crangon Ltd providing monitoring survey expertise. Kyla Orr from Marine Ecological Consulting is supporting stakeholder engagement on the project.

The 2019 survey season is now complete as part of the EMFF project that is engaging fishers in marine environmental monitoring. Four surveys have been completed this year using drop-down video camera to document marine life on the seabed. The areas surveyed were: the Inner Sound and Wester Ross, Orkney, Shetland and Islay and Jura. These surveys build on the work completed in 2017 and 2018, surveying the seabed habitats in and around MPAs. We are pleased to announce the publication of our latest newsletter which contains details of all the work we have done so far this year. To read the Summer 2019 newsletter, please follow this link.
