MCS in Scotland is just as it says, the Scottish arm of the UK's Marine Conservation Society. They focus on marine conservation and fisheries management. MCS Scotland leads the Save Scottish Seas coalition to influence the Scottish Government and Scottish Parliament on all matters marine. This includes influencing policy and the law (Marine (Scotland) Act, and a fisheries strategy), creating 36 new MPAs including the largest in Europe, implementing a National Marine Plan, gaining protection for the most vulnerable inshore MPAs from fishing, influencing policy on plastic and other pollution.
