  • The dataset entails the maritime spatial plan of Denmark that was adopted on September 29 2023.

  • Data depicts locations of edible periwinkles around the Irish coast and has been used as a proxy for "harvesting and collecting activity" in support of Marine Strategy Framework Directive article 8, 9 10 reporting.

  • This dataset contains the digital points for major coastal towns and cities in Ireland.

  • The Classified Bivalve Mollusc Production Areas in Ireland ( 2011/12) designates the production areas from which live bivalve molluscs may be taken. Gatherers may only harvest live bivalve molluscs from these production areas which have fixed locations and boundaries and which are classified - as being of class A, B or C in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 854/2004.

  • The Royal Decree of 22 May 2019 establishing a marine spatial plan defines 15 datasets according to the INSPIRE specifications: Aquaculture zones, Coastal protection experiments zones, Commercial and industrial zones, Cultural heritage (wrecks) zones, Dredged material disposal sites, Energy, cable and pipeline zones, Fishery management zones, Measuring poles, Military use and storage sites for war munition zones, Nature conservation areas, Potential seaport expansion zones, Radar towers, Sand and gravel extraction zones, Scientific research, recreation, radars and masts zones, and Shipping and ports zones.

  • Under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) the continental shelf is that part of the seabed over which a coastal State exercises sovereign rights with regard to the exploration and exploitation of natural resources including oil and gas deposits as well as other minerals and biological resources of the seabed. The legal continental shelf (consisting of the shelf, the slope and the rise) extends out to a distance of 200 nautical miles from the coastline, or further if the shelf naturally extends beyond that limit (as it does in Ireland's case).

  • The National Marine Planning Framework (NMPF) Area is the geographic area management and reporting unit for Ireland's NMPF reporting. The NMPF sits at the top of the hierarchy of plans and sectoral policies for the marine area of Ireland. Marine planning brings together multiple users of the ocean to make informed and coordinated decisions on the sustainable use of marine resources. EU Directive 2014/89/EU, establishing a framework for maritime spatial planning, was adopted in July 2014. The European Union (Framework for Maritime Spatial Planning) Regulations 2016 were signed into law on 29th June 2016. The NMPF is managed by the Department of Housing Planning and Local Government (DHPLG) with monitoring support provided by the Marine Institute.

  • New, updated version of the MSP planning area for the Åland Islands, without land areas

  • Shapefiles consisting of the sea uses of the Åland Islands MSP

  • The dataset contains three files; SpatialPlan, Zoning element and Official documentation. The spatial features contain all the zones of the maritime spatial plan.
