Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST)

COAST’s mission is to protect and restore a diverse, abundant and beautiful marine environment for everyone in Arran, the Clyde and Scotland.

We aim to: improve the local marine environment for the benefit of everyone; ensure coastal communities have a say in the decisions that affect their seas; work to sustain the livelihood of those dependent on fishing and tourism; increase the popularity of Arran and the Clyde as a diving, watersports and tourist destination and educate future generations on the need for marine conservation and how to make a difference.
