The 21 Scottish marine regions and offshore marine regions are used for state of the sea assessments. These areas consolidate the existing statutory Scottish Marine Regions with non-statutory offshore marine regions.  For the purposes of assessment, the offshore marine regions extend to the continental shelf limits (adjacent to Scotland)

Scottish Marine Regions (FishDAC_1609) and Scottish Sea Areas (FishDAC_12184) were merged.  The sea area boundaries were adjusted in places to better fit with SMRs. Offshore marine regions were renamed to avoid confusion with the Scottish sea areas. All changes were approved by the Scottish Seas Data and Assessment Group (SSDAG)
