E2. Blue Marine Foundation

A talk by Morven Robertson, UK Project Officer on the Solent Project of installing Oyster Cages under Marina pontoons to help clean/purify the water – and the possibility of a similar project in Chichester Harbour.

“The Blue Marine Foundation exists to combat over-fishing and the destruction of biodiversity – arguably the largest problem facing the world’s oceans – by delivering practical conservation solutions, including the creation of large-scale marine reserves. BLUE’s aim is to put 10% of the world’s oceans under protection by 2020 and 30% by 2030. They also work to establish sustainable fisheries so fish stocks can begin to recover.” Further information visit www.bluemarinefoundation.com.
