MPA's in our Area
There are 10 marine protected areas designated within the inshore waters of the Berwickshire and Northumberland Coast.
The Management Group for the Berwickshire and North Northumberland Coast European Marine Site decided to apply its well-established partnership approach to more of the local marine nature conservation designations. Our partnership co-ordinates management for the entire network of inshore marine nature conservation designations between Fast Castle Head in Scotland, and the River Tyne in England.
Partnership members include statutory regulators such as Natural England, Scottish Natural Heritage, the Environment Agency and Marine Scotland, together with ports and harbours, local authorities, Northumberland Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority, and conservation charities
