To ask the Scottish Government how it is planning to collect data regarding fishing activity in the proposed Marine Protected Areas.

Answered by Richard Lochhead (09/01/2015):

Marine Scotland currently collects data on fishing activity including information on landings and vessel monitoring system data and this is supplemented with aerial and vessel based surveillance as determined by risk assessment. This data will be used for management of Marine Protected Areas and we will keep under review whether additional monitoring may be required.
