Biosecurity Planning

Eighteen biosecurity plans have now been finalised after consultation:

These plans present local actions for the selected Invasive Non Native Species that implement the key elements of the two key UK and Scottish Government policies and strategies relevant to non native species.

Consultation has closed on plans for:

The River Ythan:

The plan has been prepared by the Trust as part of RAFTS 2nd Biosecurity Planning Project, supported by Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish Government and Scottish Environment Protection Agency, which is part of a wider Biosecurity and Invasive Non Native Species Programme.  A suite of these plans is now in place across Scotland (http://www.invasivespeciesscotland.org.uk/biosecurity_programme/biosecurity_plans.asp) for fishery trust areas and each aims to identify how to best protect our waters from new invasive non native species infestations, best manage those species we already have and identify the range of organisations with an interest and role in supporting this work.

Firth of Clyde:

The plan has been prepared by the Forum as part of RAFTS 2nd Biosecurity Planning project, supported by Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish Government and Scottish Environment Protection Agency which is part of a wider Biosecurity and Invasive Non Native Species Programme.  A suite of these plans is now in place across Scotland (http://www.invasivespeciesscotland.org.uk/biosecurity_programme/biosecurity_plans.asp) for fishery trust areas and each aims to identify how to best protect our waters from new invasive non native species infestations, best manage those species we already have and identify the range of organisations with an interest and role in supporting this work.  The plan for the Clyde is a further innovation as it is the first such marine plan in Scotland but links with the river plans prepared by the Argyll Fisheries Trust, Ayrshire Rivers Trust and Clyde River Foundation.
