A Marine Bill

1st June 2006

Marine Taskforce response to the DEFRA consultation

LINK supports the UK Marine Bill as providing a framework for marine management in UK waters, provided complimentary devolved legislation is forthcoming. LINK supports the UK commitment to a Marine Bill with sustainable development (in line with the Scottish Executive’s own Sustainable Development Strategy1), and Marine Spatial Planning at its heart, integrating conservation, energy and resource needs, which works within the natural limits of ecosystems (an ecosystem approach) and adopts the precautionary principle to protect the environment and its resources.
