New habitat data products 2021!

EMODnet Seabed habitats have released a number of new habitat data products to the portal, which include:

  • 10 habitat point datasets
  • 23 individual habitat maps from survey
  • 3 composite habitat data products 

The new individual habitat maps span across a number of regions, including the Greater North and Celtic Seas, Black Sea and Mediterranean – and contain a mixture of Annex I habitats data, EUNIS habitats data (2007 and 2019 versions) and habitat data in national classification systems. The newly added habitat point data includes datasets from the North Sea, Black Sea, and the wider Atlantic region – with new composite habitats directive products available around the UK.


Each new data product can be visualised on the EMODnet Seabed Habitats map viewer.
