New decrees revealed on anchoring in France around Posidonia seagrass

The Maritime Prefecture of the Mediterranean has recently revealed two new decrees outlining the French anchoring regulations around Posidonia seagrass. This follows 12 other decrees that were released in early 2021.

The new decrees include information about where to anchor in Baie de la Ciotat and northern Corsica in the French Riviera in order to protect one of the ocean’s most vital ecosystems.

The penalties for failing to adhere to the regulations are significant. Captains can face imprisonment, fines of up to €150,000 (c. £129,000) and bans from navigating in French Mediterranean waters.
