Abstract

Butterstone Loch (SSSI, SPA) and Lindores Loch (SSSI) are both designated sites that are utilised as sports fisheries, and have, historically, been stocked with fish. There are proposals to re-stock the lochs during autumn 2009. The aim of this research project was to supply data to assist Scottish Natural Heritage in its role of advising on the impacts of the proposed fish introductions to the open water interests of the two sites. The report details the findings of a multi-proxy palaeoecological study of sediment cores collected from the lochs in 2009 and includes analyses of diatoms, Cladocera and plant macrofossils. The study aimed to determine the baseline floral and faunal assemblages and assess ecological change over the last few hundred years. Where possible, any relationship between the observed shifts and historic fish stocking of the lochs was explored.
