Spanish term or phrase: fondeo ecológico
From a project document from Spain for translation to British English.
Related to mooring of recreational boats in a bay off a beach in Andalusia.
A description here:

From my document for translation:
"También se instalarán fondeos ecológicos para evitar la instalación de nuevos fondeos libres."
"El fondeo ecológico consta de dos partes bien diferenciadas, una primera fijada al fondo (el sistema de anclaje o fijación) y una segunda formada por varios elementos, que va desde la parte fijada al fondo hasta la superficie llamada tren de fondeo que consta de grillete, cadena y boyas (intermedia y superficial)."

  -> No, you're completely mistaken here. The idea is to install moorings that do not damage the sea bed to avoid designating anchorages, as the text plainly states. A vessel is moored to a fixed point, which may be a buoy at sea or a bollard on a dock.
