Sites and vessels designated under the Protection of Military Remains Act 1986 ("war graves") - protected wrecks

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

The Protection of Military Remains Act 1986 deals with wrecks of both aircraft and ships, and all military aircraft are automatically protected under this legislation. This dataset show the locations of protected places and controlled sites designated under The Protection of Military Remains Act 1986 (Designation of Vessels and Controlled Sites) Order 2017. Commonly called "war graves", they are more correctly referred to as "military maritime graves".

Areas where ALL FISHING is restricted

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

Fishing pressures can be managed using spatial measures such as prohibiting or restricting certain types of fishing, target species, or vessel capacity. This dataset depicts restrictions on ALL FISHING defined by EU, UK and Scottish legislation since 1986. Polygons were simplified for web use and are for illustrative purposes only. Guidance should be sought from Fishery Offices on interpreting legislation.

Aquaculture - Guidance on the location of marine fish farms - April 2024

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

Category 1, 2 and 3 areas are designated on the basis of Marine Scotland predictive models to estimate environmental sensitivity of sea lochs. The maps describe the Category 1, 2 and 3 areas for the Scottish Government Locational Guidelines, designated on the basis of Marine Scotland Science predictive modelling to estimate nutrient enhancement and benthic impact in sea lochs or similar water bodies supporting aquaculture. The sum of these indices was used for the categorisation of areas as indicated: Combined 'nutrient enhancement' and 'benthic impact' indices 7 - 10 (Category 1), 5 - 6 (Category 2), 0 - 4 (Category 3). For a detailed explanation of how these categorisations were derived, refer to the Scottish Fisheries Research (now Marine Scotland Science) Report "Scottish Executive locational guidelines for fish farming: predicted levels of nutrient enhancement and benthic impact"
