Best Practice Advice on Creating New Estuarine and Coastal Habitats Published

Three new environmental handbooks that set out guidance on how to carry out best practice estuarine and coastal habitat creation projects across the UK and Ireland have been published by the Environment Agency.

The handbooks provide practical guidance on restoring and creating estuarine and coastal habitats and have been written by academics, industry specialists and environmental organisations.

The three books include:

  • Saltmarsh, led by the Environment Agency
  • Seagrass, led by Zoological Society of London, University of Portsmouth and the Environment Agency
  • Restoration of Estuarine and Coastal Habitats with Dredged Sediment, led by Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science, Environment Agency and marine consultancy and survey company ABPMer

They are hosted on the Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) website.
