Scotland's Seas
Scotland has an astonishing 60% of UK and 10% of Europe's coastline. Framed by myriad sea lochs, firths and islands, the surrounding seas are home to a third of the global population of grey seals; the world's most northerly population of bottlenose dolphins; 23 other species of the world's 82 whales and dolphins and 43% of all seabirds breeding in the EU. They also provide summer feeding grounds for the basking shark, which is the world's second largest fish, and the endangered leatherback turtle.
Beneath the waves are some of the finest marine habitats in Europe, including rocky reefs covered in soft corals, sea fans and sponges, shallow beds of delicate maerl, sea grass, flameshell and horsemussel beds - all providing refuge for young fish and shellfish - and spectacular coldwater coral reefs.
