Educational Projects

Working closely with our partners Blue Marine Foundation and St Abbs Marine Station, we have braved the elements and the frost mornings to spend the day out at sea with the local fishers to assess the size, sex and health of the animals they are pulling up in their pots – or creels. By linking this to temperature collected at various locations within the boundary of the Reserve, we can build a picture of how this is affecting catch rates over time.

We are committed to ensuring our beaches are clean, keeping them free from litter that could harm both humans and wildlife. We survey the marine litter we find to report nationally so that it can be used to influence decision makers and change production and manufacturing solutions.
