FishHab-II (39345)

Description

The aim of the project is to map fish habitats to improve data and information for Maritime Spatial Planning. The project focuses on mapping the habitats for 9 commercially important fish species and one invertebrate species in the inner Danish waters. Within the project methods will be developed to map habitats in data-poor as well as data-rich areas. Data derived from different sources; surveys, fisheries, citizen science will be used and combined with information derived from fisher interviews. The mapping will include coastal habitats to provide the basis for advice on management of coastal fish nursery areas.

The project is coordinated by DTU Aqua and is funded by the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).
