Wide channels 'will carry sea lettuce off the beach'

BOLD new proposals to tackle Jersey's growing sea lettuce problem, which would involve cutting huge troughs and ridges into St Aubin's Bay, have been unveiled today.

Wide channels 'will carry sea lettuce off the beach'

Environmental lobbyists Save Our Shorline have suggested cutting a number of 400-metre-wide channels into the sand.

They claim that the move would accelerate the flow of the outgoing sea water close to the sea-bed and pull the lettuce out to sea, preventing it from 'matting' at the top of the beach.

David Cabeldu, researcher for SOS Jersey, together with Tony Legg, of Jersey Sea Farms, who are both putting forward the proposal, were due to meet Infrastructure Minister Eddie Noel this afternoon.
