Defining SACs with Marine Components and SPAs with Marine Components: JNCC and Country Conservation Agency Guidance 2007


During the 16th Marine Natura 2000 Project Group meeting, non-statutory working definitions of Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) and Special Protection Areas (SPAs) with marine components were created. These definitions were created to aid the provision of information to the public and governments when queries are received regarding the number, location and associated interest features of marine SACs and marine SPAs in the UK. This is the report from this meeting.
