Consultations now open to help inform marine conservation plans for the future and the views of marine users are urgently sought.
The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) are delighted to open two important public consultations.
The first consultation seeks views on a proposed new MMO byelaw that will prohibit bottom towed gear in sensitive areas of Margate and Long Sand Site of Community Importance, which is north of the Thanet coast of Kent. The consultation is open until 12 December 2016.
The second consultation is a call for evidence that will inform MMO draft site assessments for marine protected areas (MPA) in English inshore waters. These assessments will help the MMO ensure current and potential fishing activities do not have a negative impact on habitats and species in these MPAs. This consultation is open until 12 December 2016.
