MPs warn of ‘storm of threats’ to UK seas and world’s oceans

MP’s have warned of a ‘storm of threats’ to our oceans unless action is taken including improving Marine Conservation zones.

The Environment Audit committee wants an international deal – similar to the Paris agreement on Climate Change -to protect the oceans.
