Marine Protected Areas: Spanish Inventory

 

OCEANA´S CONTRIBUTION TO THE SPANISH INVENTORY OF HABITATS AND MARINE SPECIES

In collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment and Biodiversity Foundation, Oceana has provided new exciting data about species and deep-sea marine habitats to the Spanish Inventory of Natural Heritage and Biodiversity. This project started in 2011 and its  progress can be consulted on the interactive platform Biodiversia.es.  Oceana has provided dozens of descriptions of deep-sea marine habitats and has documented the presence  of almost 200 species living in them, some of which haven´t been found before in those areas. This data will give us the opportunity to develop new management and protection measures.
