Abstract

This study set out to use information on key species components of Coral Gardens to refine the definition of the feature for UK waters and to verify suspected records of the habitat.

The results from this study will be used to assist in the identification of Marine Protected Areas in UK waters for Coral Gardens, as well as in the development of further work areas concerning the conservation of habitats in UK waters.
