Historic Marine Protected Area records

Learn more about each Historic Marine Protected Area, including maps, preservation objectives, and advice.

There is a record for each Historic Marine Protected Area (MPA).

 Each Historic MPA record provides:

  • a map of the Historic MPA
  • detailed information about the marine historic asset(s)
  • preservation objectives
  • summary operational advice for the Historic MPA

 This information aims to help regulators, developers and sea users to understand:

  • the importance of Historic MPAs and their archaeological potential
  • how their activities may or may not have an impact
