Firth of Lorn illegal dredging claim

TWO ARGYLL divers spotted what they think are illegal scallop dredging markings in the protected Firth of Lorn.

Davy Stinson from Taynuilt and Steve Barlow from Kilmore noticed damage to the seabed when they dived in the Marine Protected Area last week.

David Stinson told The Oban Times: ‘It might only be a few boats but, this winter, we have seen damage. The stuff we saw last week was from within 48 hours. We didn’t have a camera so we went back out a few days later with an underwater camera and documented the damage. When I first started, there was no dredging.’
