Environment Secretary Michael Gove has created 41 new Marine Conservation Zones. Regulators, such as the Marine Management Organisation and local Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authorities (IFCA), will be responsible for ensuring the Marine Conservation Zones are managed to protect their species and habitats, working with local fishing communities and other organisations.

Sites in the Solent include Yarmouth to East Cowes, Selsey Bill and the Hounds, and Bembridge.
