New reports concerning Scottish coastal marine ecosystems
This summer Marine Scotland Science has published two interesting reports concerning Scottish marine ecosystems.
The first is a review of previously published information concerning the Firth of Clyde ecosystem. The report has found that “while the Clyde has clearly been impacted by human activities, it supports significant quantities of fish and is demonstrating some signs of recovery”.
A summary of the report can be found at: http://www.scotland.gov.uk/News/Releases/2012/06/FirthClyde19062012
