The proposal is to prohibit bottom towed gear in all of the Studland Bay MCZ, not just the seagrass area, and extends to cover an area of seagrass on the Training Bank, that is outside of the MCZ.

The consultation is open until 1 August supportive responses will be welcome, particularly in view of the VNAZ areas currently being designated for no anchoring.
