Guide for community participation in seaweed farm applications published
The Sustainable Inshore Fisheries Trust's new publication "Seaweed Cultivation in Scotland - A Guide for Community Participation in Seaweed Farm Applications" is now available. The guide is intended for coastal communities and other stakeholders who wish to better understand and engage in teh application process for new seaweed farms in Scottish coastal waters.
SIFT have published this guide to provide an overview of the potential impacts of seaweed cultivation in Scotland, how these impacts are managed through the regulatory process, and how communities can participate in that process. Its hoped that the guide will empower local communities so that they can exert greater influence over how their local sea areas are managed.
The guide is available on the SIFT website https://sift.scot/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/SIFT-Seaweed-Guide.pdf
