The Code was launched by the Deputy Environment Minister Rhona Brankin at the Moray Firth Wildlife Centre in Spey Bay on 27th November 2006. Click here to download a copy of the press release.
The draft Code was developed through a series of meetings with those interested in watching marine wildlife around Scotland. The draft went out to consultation in November 2005 and a copy of the consultation report detailing the changes made following the consultations is available to download here.
