LINK response to the Sound of Barra possible Special Area of Conservation consultation

9th December 2011

We strongly support the proposed designation of the Sound of Barra as a SAC and believe it would make an important contribution towards completion of the Natura 2000 network within UK waters. Furthermore, designation would contribute towards the creation of an ecologically coherent network of marine protected areas as required under the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010. We also believe the bottlenose dolphin population found within the Sound of Barra should be considered as a feature for which the site is designated. We welcome the opportunity to comment on the proposal.
