I support The Scotsman's campaign to protect our precious marine environment by taking the following measures:
1 Set up a network of marine reserves and protected areas to properly safeguard sites such as St Kilda, the Sound of Mull and others.
2 Introduce a marine planning system, effectively zoning areas for appropriate use. This will safeguard fishing grounds from offshore windfarm and other developments and allow humans to exploit the seas in a sustainable way.
3 Create a single marine management group to administer this system efficiently.
4 Give Scotland control of conservation to the 200-mile boundary with international waters.
