Marine Scotland, in partnership with Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC), has developed a Scottish Marine Protected Area (MPA) monitoring strategy. This will ensure the necessary information is collected from the Scottish MPA network to underpin assessment and reporting obligations.
The Strategy is supported by a series of annexes which provide more detail on monitoring methods, collaborative working, current monitoring and a two year forward look for MPA monitoring. Both documents can be found below.
The Strategy is a working document which will be reviewed on a regular basis in collaboration with partner organisations. If you have any questions in relation to the Strategy or supporting annexes, please send them to the Marine Conservation mailbox:
