Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate an area identified as potentially containing bedrock, stony or biogenic reef, protected habitats listed under Annex I of the EU ‘Habitats Directive’ (92/42/EEC).

This report describes the results of a survey of four areas of potential Annex I reef in the Irish Sea, north and west of Anglesey undertaken in 2005. The survey aimed to improve understanding of the habitats and communities present within areas identified as potentially containing Annex I reef habitat according to the Habitats Directive, and to assess the suitability of these areas for future designation as an offshore SAC.
