Biological Effects - Comet Assay 2016

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

Marine Environmental Assessment Group data for organic contaminants, metals, biological effects and water chemistry collected for the Clean Seas Environment Monitoring Programme (CSEMP). Sediment and biota samples are analysed for organic contaminants (PAHs, PCBs and PBDEs) and trace metals. Biological effects are also measured in biota. Nutrients are measured in water samples. This layer shows the assessments from the UK Marine Environment Monitoring and Assessment National (MERMAN) database for reporting .comet assay in mussels, which shows cellular-level marker of exposure to genotoxic contaminants. Higher values equate to more damage / exposure to the contaminants.

All data is submitted to the UK Merman database.

Biological Effects - Lysosomal Membrane Stability by Neutral Red Retention 2016

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

Marine Environmental Assessment Group data for organic contaminants, metals, biological effects and water chemistry collected for the Clean Seas Environment Monitoring Programme (CSEMP). Sediment and biota samples are analysed for organic contaminants (PAHs, PCBs and PBDEs) and trace metals. Biological effects are also measured in biota. Nutrients are measured in water samples. This layer shows the assessments from the UK Marine Environment Monitoring and Assessment National (MERMAN) database for reporting lysosomal membrane stability by neutral red retention in mussels, which shows cellular-level indicator of general stress. Higher values equate to less stress.

All data is submitted to the UK Merman database.

Biological Effects - Stress-on-stress 2016

Marine Environmental Assessment Group data for organic contaminants, metals, biological effects and water chemistry collected for the Clean Seas Environment Monitoring Programme (CSEMP). Sediment and biota samples are analysed for organic contaminants (PAHs, PCBs and PBDEs) and trace metals. Biological effects are also measured in biota. Nutrients are measured in water samples. This layer shows the assessments from the UK Marine Environment Monitoring and Assessment National (MERMAN) database for reporting stress-on-stress in mussels, which shows an organism-level indicator of general stress. Higher values equate to less stress.

All data is submitted to the UK Merman database.

Areas where fishing of RAZOR CLAMS (Ensis spp.) is authorised for scientific purposes - March 2018

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

Fishing for razor clams (Ensis spp.) within the Scottish zone is prohibited. For a trial period, Marine Scotland will authorise (under Article 43 of EC Regulation No. 850/1998 and article 4(2) of Scottish SI 2017 No. 419) electrofishing for razor clams (Ensis spp.) in certain areas around Scotland for scientific research.
