Welsh National Marine Plan Published

The Welsh Government has published the Welsh National Marine Plan – Wale’s first ever strategic plan for marine management.

Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths, said:

“This is our first step in ensuring we utilise our seas to the best of their potential, without having a negative impact on our marine and coastal environment. It’s important to point out this is a living, active plan, not a plan to be put on a shelf to gather dust and be forgotten.  The far-reaching plan has been developed through extensive collaboration with those working in the marine sector and is a significant milestone in our ambitions for the sustainable management of our seas. This plan sends a clear message on how we are planning for a more prosperous and resilient Wales where our seas will be abundant with life, as well as providing us with clean, green, and safe energy that will enrich the lives of the people of Wales.”
