In the news: mechanical dredging trials
You may have seen in the news or on social media discussion about mechanical dredging trials.
A Scottish Government spokesperson said:
“No mechanical dredging trials have been commissioned or are planned. The Seaweed review group has agreed for the need for a desk study to consider what any appropriate pilot study approach could be. However, any pilot would only be developed once these desk studies have concluded and supplementary investigations, such as expert judgement and supporting modelling work, are carried out.”
