To celebrate the Year of Coasts and Waters, this small exhibition explores Scotland’s diverse sea life and the many threats facing our marine life. Find out about the scientific research measuring the impact of our activities on the marine environment and how global climate change is affecting the wildlife in our waters.
Scotland’s coast stretches for 18,672 km and Scotland’s seas cover 462,263 km2, more than six times its land area. From its shores the seabed plunges from shallow seas less than 20 metres deep to more than two kilometres deep, where seamounts dwarf Scotland’s highest mountains. Scotland’s coasts and seas brim with life. More than 46,500 species are known, and more are discovered all the time.
