Loch Etive Case Study

In August 2016, a case study workshop on Loch Etive was funded by the Dynamics and Properties of Marine Systems (DPMS) theme within the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland (MASTS). Loch Etive is one of the more economically and ecologically important sea lochs on the west coast of Scotland, supporting research and commercial fishing, and is the only known Scottish sea loch known to experience periodic hypoxia in the bottom waters. The workshop reviewed existing research knowledge and activity within the loch; current commercial activities and management plans; and identified gaps in knowledge and potential research activities.  The workshop brought together researchers and stakeholders, and this report provides an overview of the information collected and discussed.
