Abstract

Article 11 of the EU Habitats Directive outlines a requirement to undertake surveillance on the conservation status of all cetacean species occurring in UK waters, and to report on this every six years. Under the Habitats Directive, species and habitats should achieve and maintain a favourable conservation status (FCS).

The purpose of this project was to estimate the costs associated with a dedicated cetacean surveillance scheme for UK waters. These costs will contribute to the further development of a UK Cetacean Surveillance Strategy.
