When anchoring ensure you always place anchors correctly and securely. Anchors damage reefs and seagrass beds when they are allowed to shift. Consider purchasing a new anchor that does less damage to seabeds. Where possible avoid anchoring over seagrass and reef areas. Anchoring is not permitted in mooring grounds or shipping channels and fairways.
