Welsh Government confirm they have no intention of prohibiting no-take recreational diving in HP MCZs at meeting with diving representatives

The Welsh Government Marine Branch met diving representatives (BSAC, WASAC, SAA, dive schools, Seasearchers) in Swansea on 12th June.

The WG representative gave the key assurances that there is no intention of prohibiting look-but-don’t-take recreational diving in highly protected MCZs.

The diving representatives assured WG that the diving community as a whole are supportive of MCZs.  However, they were concerned that the WG had a negative attitude toward diving and stressed the high training and environmental standards and responsibility of the overwhelming majority of divers.

The minutes of the meeting are here.
