Exe Estuary

South West

Located on the south coast of Devon, the Exe Estuary is a fantastic and beautiful place to live, work and visit. It is an internationally important site for wildlife and habitats, a naturally ideal environment for shellfish cultivation, tourism, bird watching and a wide range of recreational activities and is the gateway to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. With miles of safe walking and cycling trails around the entire estuary which offer some spectacular views, the Exe Estuary is a terrific place to explore by foot, cycle or wheelchair.

The Exe Estuary Management Partnership (EEMP) coordinates management of the estuary, on behalf of local authorities, government agencies and conservation bodies and provides a contact point for local communities of the estuary. The Partnership seeks to conserve and enhance the estuary’s special nature and promote sustainable economic and social activity by managing competing demands and addressing any conflicts as they arise, to ensure that interests and activities are harmonised.

The Exe Estuary Fisheries Group is led by the EEMP and aims to encourage, promote and bring economic rewards to businesses that support local fisheries.
