Lyme Bay marine conservation project a success

A pioneering partnership between fishermen and conservationists in Lyme Bay is being hailed a success. The project gives fishermen a say in the management and regulation of the marine reserve.

They've drafted a voluntary code of conduct to protect their livelihoods and help preserve fish stocks. They're telling other interested groups about the project at a conference on Portland today.
