    "Site Condition Monitoring has been (SCM) undertaken to determine whether the status of the special interest features which underpin the designation of habitats or areas are being maintained, and to guide site management action where appropriate. This study aimed to provide additional baseline data against which future changes can be measured to support Natural England’s overall programme of monitoring and surveillance of the sites into the future."

    The dataset on the shellfish protected areas under the Water Framework Directive (WFD) was created in 2023 by AND-International for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). The Directive (Article 6, paragraphs 1 and 2) requires Member States to designate areas which require specific protection of their surface water and groundwater, or for the conservation of habitats and species directly depending on water. According to Annex IV (ii) of the WFD, these areas should include areas designated for the protection of economically significant aquatic species (shellfish in this case). This dataset compiles the designated areas as provided by national sources (The Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government of Ireland and The Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demography in Spain) and it is available for viewing and download on EMODnet web portal (Human Activities, https://emodnet.ec.europa.eu/en/human-activities). Each polygon has the following attributes: area ID (in EMODnet), country, area name, designation date, ID from the source.

    The dataset on licensed sites of shellfish aquaculture in the EU was created in 2023 by AND-International for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by national sources representing the delimitation of shellfish farms (polygons) in the following countries: France, Ireland and Spain. Data from France and Spain comes from national and regional cadastral data, while data from Ireland comes from the list of registered aquaculture sites. Each polygon has the following attributes (where available): country, expiration date, farm type (Mussels, Oysters, Mussels-Oysters, Clams, Specialised (other), Mixed (other)), species from the source (English translation of the information provided on species grown or authorised in the source), production method (Beds, Long lines, Rafts, Saltwater closed (recirculation), Saltwater ponds, Saltwater tanks/raceways, Trestles or trays, Bouchot, On-bottom, Sea cages, Other), production stage (Broodstock, Grow out for human consumption, Harvest, Hatchery, Nursery, Reproduction, Wild capture of seeds, Purification, Maturing, Other), purpose (only specified for some sites authorised for research purposes), polygon information (Lines to Polygon or Original) depending on how the information is provided in the source (polygons or lines), site_id, year updated (in the source), shape length and shape area. The farm type relies on a typology established by AND-International, based on available information on species grown or authorised. A relational table provides harmonised information about species grown or authorised using Eurostat nomenclature for the Species Group (Mussels; Oysters; Clams, cockles, arkshells; Scallops, pectens; Abalones, winkles, conchs; Sea-urchins and other echinoderms) and when available the species name (e.g. Blue mussels - Mytilus edulis). Data are available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal ( https://emodnet.ec.europa.eu/en/human-activities), except for the data from Spain, which are available in the viewer, but not for download.

    A survey by JNCC in partnership with Cefas to Wight Barfleur Reef Special Area of Conservation. Located in the central English Channel, Wight Barfleur Reef is characterised by a series of well-defined exposed bedrock ridges, up to 5 m high, together with areas of flat, smooth mudstone and sandstone with overlying coarse sediment (gravels, cobbles and boulders), which in places forms stony reef, which has been designated to protect the EU Habitats Directive (1992) Annex I habitat feature Reefs.

    The dataset on freshwater aquaculture in the European countries was created in 2017 by AND-International for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). The dataset provides information about the location of freshwater finfish farms in the EU and partner countries where data are available. It is available for viewing and download on EMODnet web portal (Human Activities, https://emodnet.ec.europa.eu/en/human-activities). For EU MSs, it relies mainly on data collected under the Regulation (EU) 2016/429 (the ‘Animal Health Law’). As far as partner countries are concerned, data have been collected in Norway and in the UK (Scotland only), where detailed data are provided online. Data provided here cover Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, France, Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, and the UK (Scotland only). Each point has the following attributes (where available): status (Active, Expired, Inactive, Renewal), country, owner name, farm type (Carp, Diversified pond fish, Eel, Other diversified, Other specialised, Salmonids, Sturgeon, Trout), production method (Closed systems - recirculation, Ponds, Tanks/Raceways, Cages/Enclosures/Pens, Quarantine facility, Research facility, Other), production stage (Grow out for human consumption, Hatchery, Nursery, Brood stock, Put and take fisheries, Restoration of wild stock, Processing facility, Other), purpose (Commercial, Restocking, Other), Species from Source (English translation of the information provided on species grown in the source), point information (Polygon centroid, Original) depending on how the information is provided in the source (polygons or points), site_id and source_id (id from the source where available). The farm type relies on a typology established by AND-International, based on available information on species grown. A relational table provides harmonised information about species grown using Eurostat nomenclature for the Species Group (Carps, barbels and other cyprinids; Miscellaneous freshwater fishes; River eels; Salmons, trouts, smelts; Sturgeons, paddlefishes; Tilapias and other cichlids), the species name (commercial and scientific) and the code. Data have been updated for Austria, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Ireland, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, and the United Kingdom. Data from Spain have been added.

    This composite Digital Terrain Model (cDTM) is a high resolution bathymetry dataset highlighting measurement of depth of water in the ocean. This cDTM covers Galway Bay and Aran Islands off the coast of Co. Galway in Ireland. The EMODnet high resolution DTM covers bathymetry surveys completed between during 2022. Bathymetric data collected on board research vessels using multi-beam and single-beam echosounder instrumentation. Raw bathymetry processed within CARIS software to produce bathymetry products subsequently converted to NetCDF cDTM for EMODnet. Acquisition, processing and product delivery follows IHO standard s44 Edition 5. cDTM is composed of two (2) images “merged simply” using GLOBE software. INFOMAR (Integrated Mapping for the Sustainable Development of Ireland's Marine Resource) is a twenty year program to map the physical, chemical and biological features of Ireland's seabed established in 2006. INFOMAR is funded by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE), and delivered by joint management partners Geological Survey Ireland and the Marine Institute. The program is the successor to the Irish National Seabed Survey (INSS) which ran between 1999 and 2005. INFOMAR concentrates on creating integrated mapping products related to the seabed.
