Export cable / Advisory anchor exclusion zone.

All mariners should note that there is an advisory anchor exclusion zone that extends for 200 meters either side of the exposed sections of the export cables and you are advised to avoid anchoring in this area. this also includes anchors that are attached to fishing gear. Fishermen are requested and advised to mark these positions on their charts / plotters and keep clear, avoid conducting any trawling or the setting of any pots in the immediate area of the exposed cables.
