Mapping environmental considerations for marine planning

Our series of maps bring together evidence that describes environmental considerations (birds, fish, marine mammals and habitats) for the following sectors:

  • aggregates
  • aquaculture
  • cabling
  • floating offshore wind
  • tidal range energy
  • tidal stream energy
  • wave energy

These maps are a spatial tool for marine planners.

View and download the mapping data and read the methodology report to find out:

  • how the datasets and maps were produced
  • how you can use the maps
  • how we will maintain them for future planning

You can also request the conservation importance and potential impact scores data
