Shifting Sands

The Royal Geographical Society has reported on the practice and impact of marine aggregate dredging in the March 2008 edition of its magazine, Geographical. The report is titled “Shifting Sands”, and MARINET has contributed to this report. The article is introduced in the magazine by the following text: “Mining the seabed for sand and gravel for use in construction is a major industry in the UK. But while the official line from the government and the mining industry is that damage is inconsequential, environmental groups are voicing concerns about the impact on sea defences, fish stocks and fragile coastal habitats.”
