Abstract

JNCC’s Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland has been widely used by Government bodies, academic institutions, the private sector and regional projects. It is generally thought to be highly beneficial, but a number of concerns have surfaced as the Classification continues to be used for a widening range of purposes.

JNCC recognises that the Classification needs to be kept up-to-date, and there is now scope to further develop the Classification in response to issues highlighted by users. This report summarises user issues in order to identify and prioritise future development work.
