DataCite is a leading global non-profit organisation that provides persistent identifiers (DOIs) for research data and other research outputs. Organizations within the research community join DataCite as members to be able to assign DOIs to all their research outputs. This way, their outputs become discoverable and associated metadata is made available to the community. DataCite then develops additional services to improve the DOI management experience, making it easier for our members to connect and share their DOIs with the broader research e [...]

To date, OSPAR has largely been responsible for the development of an ecosystemapproach to the management of marine natural resources. Ten Ecological Quality Issueshave been identified, with the intention of setting Ecological Quality Objectives (EcoQOs) foreach issue. Since 2000, this scheme has been developed and piloted in the North Sea.Fish Communities is the fifth in the list of Ecologica ...
SUBJECT: fish abundance in water bodies; fish biomass in water bodies; fish morphology; age and physiology

Dogwhelks were collected from 20 sites throughout Sullom Voe and Yell Sound in August2009 by Aquatic Survey and Monitoring Limited, and transported to FRS Marine Laboratoryin Aberdeen for imposex analysis. Dogwhelks of all sizes (juveniles to adults) were collectedfrom five of the sites. Results of the present survey were compared to the ten previoussurveys and assessed against the recently de ...
SUBJECT: organometallic species concentration parameters in biota; chemical oceanography

Tables describing the annual cycles of physical (temperature, salinity, density and watercolumn stability), chemical (nitrate, orthophosphate, silicate, ammonia and oxygensaturation) and biological (particulate organic carbon, particulate organic nitrogen,chlorophyll-a and phaeophytin) parameters are presented for twenty six sub-areas ofScottish coastal and oceanic waters. These tables have be ...
SUBJECT: dissolved oxygen parameters in the water column; nitrate concentration parameters in the water column; salinity of the water column; density of the water column; temperature of the water column

Our modelling approach involved the following components. 1. The output from an existing hydrodynamic model covering Scottish waters and the compilation of a climatological flow-field to represent "average" conditions. 2. Proposed MPA locations as "source" and "target" areas for the dispersal of individual species (at the relevant life stage for dispersal). 3. Species life cycles divided into ...

Information regarding a suspected outbreak of VHS was received by MarineScotland (MS) which acts on behalf of the Scottish Ministers as the competentauthority for fish, shellfish and crustacean diseases on the 13 December 2012.The suspicions were based on increased mortalities and a commercially-sourcedpositive test result for wrasse held for a fish farming company.

Descriptor 9 (contaminants in food) is one of eleven Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) qualitative Descriptors to be used in determining whether Good Environmental Status (GES) has been achieved for European regional seas (Directive EC/2008/56). For monitoring of compliance with GES for Descriptor 9, contaminant concentrations in fish and seafood should be compared against the EC regu ...
SUBJECT: concentration of other organic contaminants in biota; trace metalloid concentrations in biota; age and physiology; concentration of polychlorobiphenyls (pcbs) in biota; shellfish morphology
Webster, L. 
For biological effects it is proposed that Scotland will monitor selected effectsmeasurements (including the end points considered to be OSPAR ‘common’ and‘candidate’ indicators) from the ICES integrated scheme on a rolling basis such thateach sea area is sampled at least once per MSFD reporting cycle (every 6 years).At locations where human pressures are highest (Clyde and Forth), or where th ...
SUBJECT: concentration of polychlorobiphenyls (pcbs) in sediment samples; trace metalloid concentrations in biota; concentration of other organic contaminants in sediment samples; anthropogenic contamination
Modelling of Noise Effects of Operational Offshore Wind Turbines including noise transmission through various foundation types
Marmo, B. 
This report presents modelling of the acoustic output of operational off-shore wind turbines and its dependence on the type of foundation structure used. Three foundation types are examined: jacket, monopile and gravity foundation. The acoustic output from each of these foundation types is then compared to curves representing the hearing and behavioural response of marine species likely to com ...

A process was therefore put in place by Marine Scotland to develop a Scoping Report for thepotential for tidal stream energy development in Scottish waters out to 200 nautical miles. Itis intended that that this will inform the marine planning process by leading to thedevelopment of Regional Locational Guidance for tidal stream energy development, which inturn will be the basis for a Sectoral ...

The Scottish Government has set a range of challenging targets for energy and climatechange. These recognise the potential to take advantage of the extensive marine energyresources (wind, wave and tidal power) available in Scottish waters and include meeting atleast 30% of total energy demand from renewable sources by 2020, incorporating:o 100% of electricity demand from renewables (31% by 201 ...
