UK | Greenpeace plans to drop boulders in MPA off Cornwall to disrupt seabed trawling

Activists are planning to drop boulders into the sea off the Cornish coast to block industrial fishing vessels from trawling the seabed, which hosts catfish, cockles and corals.

Although South West Deeps (East), 190 km southwest of Cornwall, has been designated a Marine Protected Area (MPA), fishing is still allowed because the status does not automatically prohibit it.
