New habitat data product: OSPAR Threatened and/or Declining habitats version 2020

On behalf of the OSPAR Commission, JNCC have collated the latest OSPAR threatened and declining habitats data (points and polygons) into a single product, which is now available to view, download and access as a Web Service via the EMODnet Seabed Habitats portal. These datasets show the distribution of habitats on the OSPAR list of threatened and/or declining species and habitats within the North-east Atlantic.

The latest update includes a collation of new data submitted by the OSPAR contracting parties, but also through a new third-party provider, Oceana.
