FAIR ISLE'S PROPOSED DEMONSTRATION AND RESEARCH MPA REACHES NEXT PHASE.
Fair Isle's proposed Demonstration and Research MPA fully meets the majority of the criteria required by the independent assessors and therefore Marine Scotland will present the proposal to Ministers to review and consider whether they wish to take the proposal forward to public consultation. This is a significant step. Thank you to all those involved, especially Nick Riddiford and Kerri Whiteside; and a big thank you to everyone for their continued support,
