Proposal to designate Red Rocks and Longay as a Marine Protected Area: consultation

An overview of the consultation to designate a new Marine Protected Area within the Inner Sound of Skye, including short summaries of the available documentation. The MPA will protect flapper skate and their eggs as well as the geodiversity feature, Quaternary of Scotland.

Conservation Objectives

Conservation Objectives describe the current and desired ecological or geological state (or quality) of each proposed protected feature. The objectives are either to 'conserve' or 'recover' a feature. Where evidence exists that the feature is in an unfavourable condition within the site, the objective will be to 'recover', otherwise it will be to 'conserve'.

The proposed Conservation Objectives for the MPA are outlined below:

Proposed Protected Features: Flapper skate

Conservation Objective: Conserve

Proposed Protected Features: Quaternary of Scotland (Moraines, rock drumlins and crag and tails)

Conservation Objective: Conserve
