Scottish Marine Regions, Defining their Boundaries – consultation response

10th March 2011

LINK’s Marine Taskforce long advocated the introduction of a marine planning system, on both a national and regional scale, and fully support the establishment of Marine Planning Partnerships (MPPs). We believe the purpose of both national and regional plans must be the achievement of Good Environmental Status and the maintenance, and where appropriate restoration, of marine ecosystems. We also continue to believe the development of the national, and regional plans should follow the 12 principles of the ecosystem approach and the operational guidance as developed under the Convention of Biological Diversity (UNEP/CBD/COP/5/23).
