Invitation to Consultation

Commercial Fishing & the Marine Historic Environment

Our coastal waters are rich with marine archaeological resources, including a potentially great number of as yet undiscovered sites. These resources comprise historic shipwrecks and aircraft crash sites, submerged prehistoric landscapes and remains of coastal structures such as early fish traps. The protection of our marine historic environment is important to our cultural heritage.

Gone bananas

Sadly, Bananaman hasn’t come to town, but we do have the next best thing on our MESL team, a roving marine biologist dressed as a banana. Congratulations go to Ross Griffin, Angela de Burgh and David Alexander who have recently completed the Bristol and Bath Half Marathons. Also watch Angie “de Bore” (Burgh) surfing the Severn Bore on the largest December spring tide this year with the Aquatech team and bore legend Steve King.
