Scotland's vision is for 'clean, healthy, safe, productive, biologically diverse marine and coastal environments, managed to meet the long term needs of nature and people'. In 2011, Marine Scotland published Scotland's Marine Atlas: Information for the National Marine Plan in order to provide an assessment of the state of Scotland’s seas. This assessment has been based on scientific evidence from data and analysis, supported by expert judgement. It was a collaboration between Marine Scotland, SEPA, SNH, JNCC and MASTS. The overall assessment was split into 4 distinct parts:
- Clean and Safe Seas Assessment
- Healthy and Biologically Diverse - Habitats Assessment
- Healthy and Biologically Diverse - Species Assessment
- Productive Seas Assessment
This layer displays the results of the Healthy and Biologically Diverse - Species Assessment. The overall assessment key can be viewed at: https://www.gov.scot/Publications/2011/03/16182005/14/.
