Results of a trial dredge in Falmouth Harbour go to the lab.

It will be six months before we know whether a rare type of seaweed can survive a full-scale project.

It is to let bigger cruise ships dock and officials say it will create hundreds of jobs.

Dr Miles Hoskin, from the Falmouth Bay Action Group, said: The maerl beds in the Fal are effectively unique in England. There is nothing like them elsewhere in the country. They're not only important for themselves but also for the habitat they provide to a broad range of other species, including some species which are commercially important for fishermen."
