Map of MSFD Benthic Broad Habitat Types

We have updated our MSFD harmonised habitat map to reflect the changes to the MSFD benthic broad (or predominant) habitat types classification brought by the recent EU Commission Decision (17 May 2017).The EMODnet Seabed Habitats MSFD Benthic Broad Habitat Types map is derived from the EUSeaMap 2016 broad-scale predictive habitat map. It covers all European seas at roughly 250m resolution. Its coverage is being extended to the Barents Sea by 2019.View and Download the data using our Map Viewer.
