Loch Linnhe and the Firth of Lorn MASTS case study workshop report

doi: 
10.7489/1539-1

Scottish Marine and Freshwater Science Vol 6 No 1

In February 2014, the Dynamics and Properties of Marine Systems (DPMS) Theme of the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland (MASTS) organised a case study workshop on the Loch Linnhe and Firth of Lorn (LL&FL) system. Loch Linnhe is one of the largest sea lochs on the west coast of Scotland, and the Firth of Lorn provides a connection to the open ocean. During the workshop, a review of the current knowledge of LL&FL was undertaken in three subject areas: the physical environment, the aquatic ecosystem and the management and use. This review also identified a number of knowledge gaps and potential collaborations to address these. This report provides an overview of these discussions. A more comprehensive, scientific review of our knowledge of the LL&FL system will be published in the near future.

On 25-26 February 2014, members of MASTS’s DPMS Research Theme attended a workshop in Crieff to review our current knowledge of the LL&FL system and discuss areas of research required to address specific challenges. Although originally focussed on Loch Linnhe, it was decided to expand the spatial coverage of the workshop to include the Firth of Lorn because of the linkages between the two systems, the fact that considerable data also exist for the Firth of Lorn. This report provides an overview of these discussions.
