Review of evidence for identified seabird aggregations 2015


As part of the process of identifying potential Marine Protected Areas, Kober et al (2010, 2012) undertook a detailed analysis of seabird data collected during surveys within the British Fishery Limit and stored within the European Seabirds At Sea (ESAS) database.

These analyses identified 42 key seabird aggregations around the coast of the UK. The aim of this report is to review some of the important areas identified in light of other independent information, in order to give the most robust and complete evidence-base possible (given current knowledge) on which to base any future decisions about these areas.
