STRANGFORD LOUGH SAC/SPA CONSERVATION OBJECTIVES

Strangford Lough is not a static system, but is subject to natural change both in terms of its biological communities and its geomorphology.  The conservation objectives are designed to accommodate the dynamic nature of the site.  In overall terms, Strangford Lough was deemed to be in Favourable Condition at the time of its designation.  This does not rule out setting targets that will enhance the condition of any feature or sub-feature.

County Down Seafood - August 2015

This report was produced by tourism specalists BTS, supported by fish industry experts Poseidon Consulting.  It is a market based business plan, commissioned by Strangford Lough & Lecale Partnership (SLLP), with funding from the EU and the South East Area Fisheries Local Action Group (SEAFLAG), to provide economic benefit to the South East Area which includes the fishing ports Portavogie, Ardglass, and Kilkeel.

The analysis is designed to help develop the local market for locally caught seafood and local quality agricultural produce within the area.  The project examines the opportunities, for food tourism in the Strangford Lough and Mourne Mountain destination, building on the concentration of the Northern Ireland fishing industry in the area, the quality of other local food produce and the number and the quality of local eating places across the area.
