Sussex Site Shortlisted as Proposed Highly Protected Marine Area ????

Published: 22 Jul 2022

Dolphin Head delight

Sussex Wildlife Trust is delighted that a site in Sussex offshore waters, Dolphin Head, has been included in Defra’s consultation on Highly Protected Marine Areas (HPMA). We will be supporting the designation of this site in order to protect the area from further damage and degradation. Additionally, protecting this site will safeguard important spawning and nursery grounds of many commercially important species – thus supporting a thriving local fishing industry into the future.

National Marine Week starts on Saturday 23 July and we will be celebrating Sussex sealife on our social media channels.
