This report presents the analysis of written responses to the Scottish Government's Planning Scotland's Seas Consultation on Priority Marine Features. The consultation closed on 13 November 2013.

Executive Summary

On 25 July 2013 the Scottish Government launched a public consultation on a draft Priority Marine Features list, which represents 80 habitats and species of marine conservation importance.

The consultation sought to gather views on a recommended list of Priority Marine Features as a basis for targeting future marine conservation action in Scotland's seas.

A total of 31 written responses to the consultation were received. These responses have provided a range and depth of views on the draft Priority Marine Features list which will help us to shape the final list.
