Celebrating community involvement in marine conservation and management for WORLD OCEANS DAY 2016
The inside story of how an island community is standing up for its dearest resource: the sea.
The Firth of Clyde was once a very rich and diverse source of wealth for coastal communities. Now 99% of what fishermen land is shellfish. But the future is looking brighter with the new Marine Protected Areas.
COAST is celebrating World Oceans Day by sharing in this film our 20 years community experience in making the case for responsible and fair management of our seas. We are also hoping to inspire other communities to raise their voices and be involved in decisions about their seas.
FILM WILL GO LIVE ON THE 8th JUNE - WORLD OCEANS DAY
We are very grateful to the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation for giving us the chance to bring this story forward with the help of DayforNight films.

The Arran Banner have published today a full feature on the Marine Protected Area celebration and plans for a new Marine Discovery Centre on Arran.
Feedback from the community and visitor surveys have confirmed the demand for this discovery centre which will educate and enthuse locals and visitors about Arran's marine environment and activities. It will also be a marine research hub and allow us to keep campaigning for healthy and productive seas for all.
