Abstract

The analyses presented here draw heavily on methods described in detail elsewhere (e.g. McSorley et al, in prep; Webb et al, in press). This report aims to provide the results of analyses in an accessible format to enable a rapid decision of whether an SPA or SPAs should be classified in Liverpool Bay and also to inform the issue of wind farm developments in Liverpool Bay.

A separate report based on these analyses recommends options for boundaries for a possible SPA (Webb et al 2004).
