Weymouth artificial reef to boost lobsters
Nearly two tonnes of Portland stone has been deposited on the seabed off Dorset to form a lobster sanctuary.
The rocks have been carefully spread in a circle just off the coast of Weymouth and Portland, near Ringstead Bay, to form an artificial reef.
Small rocks have been used for the reef as the crustaceans prefer to live in rocky crevices.
It is part of a project to boost lobster stocks to help the commercial fishing industry.
