Protected Annex I Reefs in offshore SACs - line and point data - WMS layer 2023
These Web Map Service (WMS) layers display point and line data for Annex I Reefs protected in offshore Special Areas of Conservation (SACs), as displayed on the MPA mapper. The layers comprise:
- point and line data from a 2016 survey to three SACs in the southern North Sea (monitoring report available from the JNCC website, GI data available via WMS or on request)
- point data collated from a variety of sources in the Annex I Reefs in UK waters composite dataset (v8.3).
The layers present geospatial points and lines for high confidence and potential records of Annex I Reefs in UK offshore SACs. Annex I Reefs occur where rocky areas or concretions made by marine animals arise from the surrounding seafloor.
