Marine invasive non-native species advice note

Holyhead marina incident and potential spread of the marine invasive non-native species Didemnum vexillum.

On 2 March, storm Emma caused significant damage to Holyhead Marina in North Wales. Clean-up operations followed and are on-going. As part of clean-up operations, actions are being taken to reduce any potential environmental impacts that may occur as a result of this incident. 

The below advice note has been prepared by Natural England to advise interested parties as, despite efforts to contain debris from the damaged marina, some debris has drifted out of the harbour area into the wider marine environment.
