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.
