Poole Rocks Marine Conservation Zone
Life on the rocks, under the waves
Just one mile off the beach in Poole Bay, in just 6-12m of water, lies a wealth of marine life rich in colour and form, making its home among a number of rocky reefs
The Dorset Integrated Seabed survey (DorIS) mapped the Dorset seabed using sonar technology. This gave accurate information about the local seabed features.
On the map you can explore the rocky reefs within the yellow MCZ boundary and take a look at other incredible undersea formations around the Dorset coast. If using a touch screen, use two fingers to zoom and scroll.
