Our Irish Sea is a wonderful place. Beneath the surface there are vast undersea landscapes and diverse communities of marine life. Corals, anemones and seahorses live alongside sea pens, potatoes and cucumbers; fish like plaice nestle into deep muddy plains while 21 species of shark swim gracefully overhead. Stunning seabirds, seals, whales and dolphins feed on the sea’s riches, and this is just the start.
UK seas are home to a whole lot more fascinating species, and they need protecting.
