If anyone procures and has the opportunity to read these, a review of the coverage of contents and any major omissions spotted would be appreciated with a view to publishing these on this website. No aggregate dredging takes place off Scotland, so no issues of shoreline erosion may arise. But bottom trawling is an issue that should be included.
