Description 
Summary

In 2002, the Scottish Executive asked SEPA to report on the environmental quality of waters in Loch Ryan, specifically in terms of contamination by TBT (tributyltin) and related compounds. As a result, SEPA carried out a series of special surveys in 2003. This report presents the findings of these surveys, and brings together the results of previous surveys into the effects of TBT contamination in the loch carried out in 1989, 1996, 2000 and 2001.
