The Studland Seagrass and Seahorse Project 2011 proved to be very successful with 220 questionnaires completed by boat owners at Studland Bay and also at local marinas. The information has been compiled in a report which has been submitted to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO). The full report can be downloaded here.
