The Welsh Assembly's Environment and Sustainability Committee has criticised the Welsh Government's marine policy, saying Wales's marine and coastal environment is being treated as a "third tier consideration".
In a report, the Committee claims the Welsh Government has not delivered on key responsibilities of marine policy.
We hope that the Welsh Government takes this report as a wake-up call. It has been far too slow in implementing the Marine and Coastal Access Act and the management of marine policy has not been good enough, as highlighted by the significant public concern that was evident across Wales during the recent Marine Conservation Zones consultation
According to the report, the marine and coastal environment contributes £2.5bn to the Welsh economy.
