This is bouchot culture, in which seed mussels are placed in netting tubes and wrapped around poles on intertidal beds. Excellent growth and quality mussels are obtained. Scallops, Pecten maximus, are found as wild stock on the English south coast, in the Irish Sea, the Clyde and the Scottish north and west coasts. Opinion is divided as to whether or not the world stocks are in decline.

Townsend, J. ) Floods due to high winds and tides, London: Academic Press. Gillespie INTRODUCTION The farming of fish and shellfish in UK marine waters is now a substantial and rapidly expanding industry whose commercial origins go back only to the late 1960s, when fish cages first started to appear in sheltered Scottish sea lochs.

Smith transfer requires considerable understanding by the recipient of the model’s operation and limitations, and the availability of appropriate input data and computer facilities. ) For such complete transfers (relatively rare hitherto) the practice at the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory has been to encourage a visit by the user (for some weeks or months according to model complexity) so as to gain expertise in model operation by working alongside the originators. The UK storm surge model has been transferred to the Storm Tide Warning Service (located at the Meteorological Office) for routine operation.
