This initial monitoring data was acquired from the first dedicated monitoring survey of the Croker Carbonate Slabs cSAC/SCI.


This report explores and describes the attributes of the Annex I habitat feature, ‘Submarine structures made by leaking gases’, within the Croker Carbonate Slabs cSAC/SCI (and areas of the feature adjacent to the site boundary), to enable future assessments of feature condition under the EC Habitats Directive, and to fulfil wider monitoring needs under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). In addition to providing an initial monitoring dataset, with which future monitoring data can be compared, the report will inform the development of an effective site and feature-specific monitoring approach for the Croker Carbonate Slabs cSAC/SCI.
