MPV Hirta (Marine Protection Vessel) was patrolling off Dunbar for several days in mid-September. Built at the Remontowa Yard in Gdansk, Poland she entered service in 2008. She has a crew of 17, a top speed of 18 knots and is used mainly for offshore enforcement tasks.

Britain's sea fisheries have been protected and controlled by the authority of Parliament for nearly 200 years, but in 1882 responsibility for protecting Scottish waters was given to Scotland, which currently has three ships in the fleet. MPV Hirta is the newest of our ships.
