Marine conservation zones: Whitsand and Looe Bay
This inshore marine conservation zone (MCZ) was designated on 21 November 2013. Four features were added to this site on 31 May 2019.
Applies to England
The Whitsand and Looe Bay MCZ is an inshore site located off the south coast of Cornwall. The landward site boundary follows the coastline along the mean high water mark, from Hore Stone near Talland Bay in the west, to a point between Queener Point and Long Cove on Rame Head in the east. The seaward boundary is formed by a straight line across the bay, with a small extension jutting out to the south around Looe Island. The site covers an area of 52 km2 and is 25 metres deep at the deepest point.
May 2019: Four new features have been added to this site. This is because we have new evidence to support their designation.
