Scotland | Historic MPA status mulled for area off Orkneys where German WWI fleet was scuttled

One hundred years on from the scuttling of the German High Seas Fleet at Scapa Flow, a consultation has been launched seeking views from the public on the designation of the site as a Historic Marine Protected Area (HMPA).


Historic MPAs aim to preserve marine historic assets of national importance, so that they can be protected, valued and understood.
