JNCC - Cefas partnership reports
The JNCC/Cefas Partnership Report Series documents work carried
out under the JNCC – Cefas Partnering Charter, a partnership
between the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture
Science (Cefas) and JNCC that allows both government bodies to
deliver high quality evidence to help inform decisions about the
marine environment. For more information about any of these

This is the first report of the JNCC/Cefas Partnership Report Series, investigating how available data on fishing activity obtained from Vessel Monitoring Systems can be used within the UK Marine Biodiversity Monitoring R&D Programme.
This report presents the data collected during a cruise (code CEND0514) on the RV Cefas Endeavour from 20–31 March 2014 to survey the area within and around the Central Fladen NCMPA.
The survey at Dogger Bank SCI was carried out between 17 May and 6 June 2014 on the RV Cefas Endeavour.
It was the purpose of this investigation to conduct a
dedicated multidisciplinary survey of the Haig Fras area, both to confirm its extent in relation to the existing SCI boundary and to produce an updated habitat map.
CEND0915 cruise report: Baseline monitoring at Haig Fras candidate Special Area of Conservation/Site of Community Importance and East of Haig Fras Marine Conservation Zone.
The survey at the North Norfolk Sandbanks and Saturn Reef Site of Community Interest(NNS & SR SCI) was carried out between 4 and 25 November 2013 on the RV Cefas
Endeavour (Survey CEND 22/13 and CEND 23/13). The survey was split in two parts: Part 1 (4–11 November 2013 – CEND 22/13) included a training element for JNCC staff, and the survey team therefore included a large number of JNCC staff. The survey team for part 2 (12 – 25 November 2013 – CEND 23/13) was focussed on science objectives and included Cefas marine ecologists, habitat mappers and survey technicians along with three representatives from JNCC.
This report describes the findings of a dedicated survey by JNCC in partnership with Cefas, and provides the best-available evidence to aid development of future monitoring programmes.
This JNCC/Cefas Partnership report details the seismic operations and implementation of the JNCC guidelines during the geophysical survey of the Croker Carbonate Slabs cSAC/SCI.
The Marine (Scotland) Act 2010, and the UK Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009, gave
powers to Scottish Ministers to designate Nature Conservation MPAs in Scotland’s seas as part of a range of measures to manage and protect Scotland’s seas for current and future
generations. JNCC and Scottish Natural Heritage applied the Site Selection Guidelines to identify NCMPAs that, together with existing protected areas, will form a
network of MPAs.
This report is of the CEND 23/15 survey which was undertaken to contribute to the development of a monitoring time-series for Croker Carbonate Slabs cSAC/SCI.
