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.

Abstract

 
 
The UK Marine Biodiversity Monitoring R&D Programme aims to deliver status and trend information capable of detecting change in the condition of marine habitats and species across the whole UK marine environment, both within protected sites and outside. The Programme is led by JNCC on behalf of the Statutory Nature Conservation Bodies and delivered through the UK Marine Monitoring and Assessment Strategy (UKMMAS).

This study was carried out jointly by Cefas and JNCC in partnership to investigate and test how currently available data on fishing activity obtained from Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS) can be used within the UK Marine Biodiversity Monitoring R&D Programme to help understand and monitor the effects of fishing activity on seabed habitats.
