PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Lochs Duich, Long and Alsh are a Marine Protected Area in the Scottish Highlands with extensive burrowed mud habitats. The nationally rare Pachycerianthus multiplicatus, or Fireworks Anemone, can be found in significant numbers within the MPA and are specific to very sheltered sites in fjordic sea lochs. Beds of this species are a UK Priority Marine Feature and of special conservation concern due to their apparent slow growth rate and vulnerability to environmental changes. This project will monitor a previously undocumented anemone bed in Loch Alsh.
