Last chance to float views on marine zoning

Consultation closes 19th May

Those with an interest in the Island's coastal waters still have time to have their say on new zoning proposals.

Plans for the 0 - 3 nautical mile area of the Island's Seas are currently out to consultation with several potential models and options being put forward relating  to fishing, conservation and recreational use.

Senior Marine Biodiversity Officer, Fiona Gell, says the zoning concept has already been used in the inshore fisheries closed areas and marine nature reserve in Ramsey.

She says she would love to see input from as many people as possible.  

The closing date for submissions is 5pm this Thursday (19th May)
