MMO publishes first series of marine evidence and information reports

The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) has published a series of reports on activities in and around English seas. These  are part of the MMO’s work to identify and fill gaps in knowledge that marine planners, regulators and users currently face and they make recommendations on what information is needed to support MMO decisions, and how the evidence base could be developed in the future. The information from the reports will be used to shape marine plans, and to ensure all marine uses are fully taken account of as the MMO plans for the future of our seas.

The reports published recently are:

  • Review of fisheries resource and activity in England
  • Socio-economic data report and tools review
  • Compilation of spatial data on marine recreational activities
  • Seabed habitat mapping

The MMO will continue to publish data reports to build further on the marine evidence base.

Further information and a link to the reports can be found on the Marine Management Organisation website .
