Project Seagrass seems to be mainly people from Cardiff University Dept of Marine Biology. Although NGM liked to quote work from there, it looks to me as if the seagrass lot are quite respectable. I would not, to put it delicately, piss on the Seahorse Trust if they were on fire.Let's hope they're better at science than that wunch of bankers. If not, they'll get anchoring banned while scallop dredgers carry on raping the seabed
MMO were preparing to do this, and to test Eco-Mooring gear in Studland but lost funding for it in one of the cutbacks some years ago..What they should do is establish which anchor works the best in the prevalent conditions, with the least dragging and hence least damage to the seagrass...
