The Clyde is in the forefront of concern for British estuaries, since it will be a centre for developing industry in the next decades. It happens that we know more about this estuary than many others in Britain, partly from the long history of investigation carried out by the Scottish Marine biological Association at Millport, and partly through recent scientific investigation by the Scottish Fisheries Department, the Clyde River Purification Board, University scientists, and the Institute of Geological Sciences. Nevertheless, the anticipated development in the Clyde area will make demands on our knowledge of the estuary. It is hoped that this report will serve as a useful starting point for the identification of new programmes designed to fulfil those needs.
