Manx Sea Matters

Manx Sea Matters was created in 2007 in response to exploratory licences being awarded to aggregate dredging companies in Manx Waters. The group was made up of a fishermen's representative, environmentalists, divers and individuals just concerned with the welfare of the sea bed in the territorial seas.

The group was largely successful in raising the awareness of the possible problems of digging for aggregate and as a result of this awareness aggregate dredging was pushed to the forefront of the local media while the exploratory digging took place.
