Bahrain is studying dredging impacts [representational].

Bahrain’s Supreme Council for the Environment (SCE) announced it would carry out a study to explore the impact of sea sand extraction – including digging and dredging operations – on local marine environments and wildlife.

According to BNA, the announcement was made by chief executive officer of SCE, Dr Mohammed Mubarak bin Daina.

The move comes a day after Bahrain’s HRH Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa ordered authorities in the country to stop extracting sea sand, and halt operations in marine areas located north of Muharraq and at Jarada Island.

The Prime Minister’s orders came in response to sailors and diving enthusiasts who said that marine areas might be affected by sand suction activities.

SCE will submit a report to the Prime Minister once the impact study has been conducted.
