Marine Wales

The stunning scenery and rich culture makes Wales an attractive place. Our marine area is larger than our land area and hugely important to us. Over 60% of the population live and work on the coast.

Our beautiful coastline is home to several major ports, harbours and coastal communities. Coastal and marine businesses are vitally important contributing over £6.8bn to the economy of Wales.

Our seas and coast need to be protected for future generations. Our vision is to have clean, healthy, safe, biologically diverse and productive seas. Wales offers numerous exciting opportunities for ‘Blue Growth’. We want our coastal businesses and communities to thrive in our wonderful diverse country.
