Sussex Seasearch Sites

Up until the beginning of 2015 there have been 1228 areas of the seabed off Sussex recorded by amateur divers! A big thank you to you all.

These are shown on the map below.

Sussex Seasearch ‘Events’ 1988 – 2014

The records have helped greatly to increase our knowledge and understanding of the marine life and habitats along this coast, which in turn have helped in identifying significant sites and designating Marine Sites of Nature Conservation Importance, a Voluntary Marine Conservation Zone, and  Marine Conservation Zones.
