North-east Lewis Marine Protected Area: business and regulatory impact assessment
An assessment of the business and regulatory impacts of designating the North-east Lewis Marine Protected Area.
Proposal and conservation objectives
The Scottish Government proposes to designate the North-east Lewis as an MPA to further its conservation objectives.
North-east Lewis pMPA encompasses two biodiversity features: Risso's dolphin and sandeels. The protected features also include Quaternary of Scotland interests (represented by glaciated channels/troughs, landscape of areal glacial scour and megascale glacial lineations) and Marine Geomorphology of the Scottish Shelf Seabed interests (represented by the longitudinal bedform field).
