Happy National Marine Week

Malin Group Ballast Blog

What a privilege it is to be surrounded by such breathtaking biodiversity; fortunately, 20% of the surrounding seas in Scotland are covered by marine protected areas (MPA’s), Special Areas of Conservation and sites of scientific special interest – so hopefully these diverse habitats and the creatures who live in them can remain largely undisturbed in the years to come.

The 23rd July – 7th August is National Marine Week here, and to mark the occasion we invite you to read this fantastic article by the Scottish Wildlife Trust about some of the lesser known marine species.
