Horse Mussel Restoration / Berwickshire

The Berwickshire Marine Reserve is undertaking baseline mapping and site condition assessment of horse mussels within the Reserve. Additionally, they will be developing a management plan for sustainable marine activity and promoting horse mussel bed recovery. Finally, they will create management plans and guides for publication.

The Berwickshire Marine Reserve was originally awarded £23,284 from the SMEEF privately funded grant round. This was our first fully privately financed round made possible by donations from businesses interested in restoring and enhancing Scotland’s coasts and seas. Contributors are listed here. Further funding of £10,220 was made possible by the Nature Restoration Fund and was used to purchase a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) and associated positioning equipment which will improve the mapping capacity.
