  • Benthic habitat map of the Basque country coast (SPAIN), classified with EUNIS (European Natural Information System) classification up to level 3. Symbology uses the EUNIS level3 colour scheme proposed within the MESH Atlantic European project (http://www.meshatlantic.eu)

  • This comprehensive map of the benthic communities of Les Glénan, is the synthesis of studies introduced by R. Pérez, from ISTPM, in 1980, to localize new fields of algae in front of increasing needs of the industry. It was finalized by P. Arzel, from Ifremer, in March and April 1985. For these studies, different methods were used: underwater diving, tidal zone photographs, field surveys. The aim of this study was to inform the CIAM (Comité Interprofessionnel des Algues Marines = Interprofessional committee of Seaweeds ) of evaluation of the resources and the potentialities of the Glenan. Elements collected in this layer correspond to the state of the knowledge in 1985. This map was digitised in 2006, as part of the REBENT programme, i.e. the surveying network for the benthic fauna and flora. The original legend is transferred to the "LEG_ORIG" attribute data field. The harmonization with the EUNIS typology is in progress, as part of the REBENT and Interreg-MESH programmes. One extra layer must be associated with this set of data: a point data layer on Cystoseira sp. et Halidrys siliquosa.

  • This comprehensive map of the benthic communities of Le Croisic is realized as part of the REBENT programme, i.e. the surveying network for the benthic fauna and flora. It is the result of the treatment, the analysis and the data aggregation from authors and multiple specialized agencies : - ORTHOLITTORALE 2000, - IGN data of 2000 - TOTAL FINA ELF, Pays de la Loire Region and IFREMER data of 2002, - REBENT data from 2002 to 2004, - C. Bonnot-Courtois, J. Fournier, from the CNRS and C. Rollet, J. Populus, B. Guillaumont, R. Loarer, from Ifremer in 2005. The communities' qualification is made at the level 4 of the EUNIS classification, excepted when the simple field survey allows qualifying exactly the characteristic species to the level 5. The original legend is transferred to the "ORIG_HAB" attribute data field. The harmonization with the EUNIS typology was made in 2006, as part of the REBENT and Interreg-MESH programmes.

  • This comprehensive map of the benthic communities of Les Glénan is realized as part of the REBENT programme, i.e. the surveying network for the benthic fauna and flora. It is the result of the treatment, the analysis and the data aggregation from authors and multiple specialized agencies : - ORTHOLITTORALE 2000, - IFREMER, Lidar altimetry in 2005, - M. Le Hir, S. Chauvaud, G. Robert, from the engineering firm " Télédétection et Biologie Marine " (TBM) in 2005, - N. Alloncle, student at the Brest University in 2005, - CEVA in 2004 and 2005, - Bathymetric data from SHOM, - Rebent intertidal and subtidal field studies data collected between 2003 and 2006. For these studies, various methods were used : coastal orthophotography, altimetric data from LIDAR, acoustic techniques, benthic sampling techniques, intertidal surveys. The habitat typology held for the cartography is the EUNIS classification, the European reference (October, 2004 version). In the rocky sectors, groupings of EUNIS classes were realized when the EUNIS typology was difficult to apply. It allows describing more easily the various environments. The original legend is transferred to the "ORIG_HAB" attribute data field. The harmonization with the EUNIS typology was made in 2006, as part of the REBENT and Interreg-MESH programmes.

  • The dataset includes age- and length-based catch per unit effort data for commercial fish species collected by the French trawl survey EVHOE.

  • The Offshore Beam Trawl Surveys include data collected by 4 countries (BE, DE, NL, UK) in the North Sea, Celtic Sea, and Irish Sea. Although, the surveys target plaice and sole, composition of the whole catch is analyzed.

  • This dataset contains the habitats map from the SCI (Site of Community Importance) “Sistema de cañones submarinos de Avilés” (Avilés Canyon System). The Avilés Canyon system is located in the eastern sector of the North Atlantic Ocean, on the continental margin to the north of the Iberian Peninsula. It is structurally a highly complex area, where the continental shelf in the Bay of Biscay is deeply affected by the action of tectonic compression, containing important geomorphological elements; these include: three great submarine canyons, a marginal platform and a tall structural rocky mass. This study was supported by the INDEMARES-LIFE+ Project, EC contract INDEMARES-LIFE+ (07/NAT/E/000732): Inventory and Designation of the Natura 2000 network in marine areas of the Spanish State (www.indemares.es/en). This work was coordinated by the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO, www.ieo.es) and the Biodiversity Foundation (www.fundacion-biodiversidad.es). The interpretation has been made possible thanks to direct and indirect samplings and geophysical data from campaigns INDEMARES (AVILES_0710, AVILES_0410, AVILES_0412-0912). Habitats are classified according to EUNIS nomenclature and the List of Marine Habitats in Spain (LPRE, that it’s classified hierarchically and was completed and published in March 2013).
