The underwater of North Sea close to Thyborøn, on the Jutland coast of Denmark, is a rich one.
Subwater sand dunes underneath the shallow waters of the bay, not visible from land but dominant from space, are home, together with the surrounding environment, to many rare bird species.
There are a number of shipwrecks in the area – such as that of the Imperial Russian naval vessel Alexander Nevskij – and the largest naval battle in history took place 55nm west of Thyborøn, Denmark. In 1916, 99 ships of the German High Seas fleet faced 151 ships of the British Grand Fleet in the World War I Battle of Jutland.
Another type of sinking is feared by local fishing communities: will the deal with the UK currently allowing them to fish in British waters hold true post-Brexit?
