Commenting on the Environment LINK's calls for prospective MSPs to declare their commitment to helping reverse the declining health and biological diversity of our seas, Liberal Democrat Environment spokesman Liam McArthur said:

"The Scottish Liberal Democrats support this campaign.

"The Marine (Scotland) Act provides a framework which will help balance competing demands on Scotland's seas.

"It introduces a duty to protect and where appropriate' enhance the marine environment and includes measures to help boost investment and growth in areas such as marine renewables.

"We are committed to ensuring that the Act fulfils its promise."
