Current Crown Estate Scotland leases for fin, shellfish and seaweed harvesting agreements

What is it: 

The layers show areas where there is a Crown Estate Scotland lease/lease agreement/ other agreement in place for

  1. a fin fish or shell fish farm
  2. seaweed harvesting / collecting (as Crown Estate Scotland owns about 50% of the foreshore, there may be other, privately owned foreshore, areas where seaweed is collected)

This layer is updated quarterly (approx).
