 operation neptune
Operation Neptune was implemented as a direct response to outcries from coastal communities, environmental organisations and community policing forums along the southwest coast that the poaching in their areas needed to be addressed.
As a result, Operation Neptune was considered a special task force that incorporated both police and fisheries personnel, with additional assistance from the army, navy and locally based organisations (such as municipal law enforcement officers, conservation agents and Seawatch).
Neptune annoyed the poachers and now that the Operation was terminated, it was perceived that the poachers were more determined than before to ‘rape the coast’.

 Archaeological Remote Sensing Survey of Operation Neptune
Dubbed Operation Overlord, Winston S. Churchill called this "the most difficult and complicated operation to ever take place." Yet, for all the difficulties and all the German advantages, the Allies successfully exercised a decisive edge, the control of the sea and air, which gave them unprecedented mobility.
Operational constraints encountered within the project area included: 1) tidal predictions; 2) current velocity; 3) partially awash and submerged obstructions; 4) turbidity and plankton; and 5) fouling and entanglement hazards.
Unexploded Ordnance encountered during the FS 2001 season included numerous shell casings typically found lying against the outside of the sunken Sherman M4s, reams of small arms ammunition lying exposed on the seabed and one glass ampoule containing either acid (fuse) or iodine (medicinal) (Figure 4).
