    The “Blue Belt” of English waters is now Marine Conservation Zones

    The new MCZs will cover areas from as far north as Farnes East off the coast of Northumberland down to Land’s End in the South West

    The 23 new Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) announced by UK Marine Environment Minister, George Eustice, bring the total to 50 marine protected areas, which now cover more than one fifth of English waters. The ‘Blue Belt’ now comprises over 20% of English waters granting vital protection for the diverse array of wildlife in the country’s seas.
