Marine Environment

This site is currently under development.
For up to date information please visit our website www.ukela.org

Our oceans, seas and coasts are under pressure from many sources. Recent legislation (2009 in England and Wales and 2010 in Scotland) has changed the way the seas are protected and managed. There are also campaigns to make fishing more sustainable (which not only protects fish stocks but the livelihoods of people who depend of them) and to improve the management of the whole marine ecosystem.

This section provides information on the law relating to marine planning, conservation, pollution, licensing and ownership and rights over the seabed.
