Mapping of the Haig Fras Site of Community Importance (SCI) 2015


This was 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.


This report describes the results from multidisciplinary field surveys of the Haig Fras reef complex, presently designated as a Site of Community Importance (SCI) and a candidate Special Area of Conservation (cSAC). Since the designation of Haig Fras as an SCI, new evidence has come to light suggesting that the Annex I reef habitat, for which the site was selected, extends outside the existing site boundary, prompting the present investigation to map the full extent of reef habitat at Haig Fras.
