World’s biggest flame shell bed to be protected at Loch Carron


Via Marine Conservation Society 

"The Scottish Government is consulting on the creation of a permanent marine protected area for Loch Carron, in Wester Ross. It was first designated as an 'emergency marine protected area' in May 2017, following confirmation of damage to the flame shell beds by a scallop dredging incident. A Marine Conservation Order was put in place at the same time to protect the flameshell beds from further damage by fishing."
