RowAround 2021 Microplastics Trawl

Collecting the microplastics trawl kit from Annan in early October 2021. Vikki takes the Community Baton from Alan Thompson.

Thanks to Pete Smith we have a record of our microplastics trawl in Isle of Whithorn Bay. The weather was too challenging to get out into Wigtown Bay so we covered our 1k route in the safety of our sheltered bay.

Results showing Solway SMR can be seen here

We hope our contribution to citizen science will be published by SAMS soon.
