Closed – Consultation on the Draft Scottish Marine Litter Strategy

Marine Scotland has issued a high level draft Marine Litter Strategy which aims to address the levels of marine litter present in the marine and coastal environment. The Strategy, which sits alongside Scoland’s draft National Litter Strategy which is also the subject of consultation, seeks to maximise opportunities and minimise threats to addressing the levels of litter. It will deliver a framework for the control and management of marine litter and relevant collaborations with other countries in the North East Atlantic through the OSPAR Convention and the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive. The consultation ends on 27th September and more information and the consultation documents can be downloaded here
